    A careful, intelligent, and seamless design that makes room for a couple of unexpected twists.
  2. 75
    Has the refined taste to crib from classics like "Double Indemnity."
  3. 75
    Doesn't come close to the pulp beauty and complexity of classic noir.
  4. Style overwhelms substance by default.
  5. 40
    Director Mike Barber springs a twist ending that makes you sit up and stifle those yawns.
  6. Sadly, a film about betrayal is ultimately betrayed by the film maker's own lack of conviction.
