Poor writing leaves you ready to exit the theatre after the first 30 minutes. It is utterly predictable and not even SCARY!

Feels like a B-movie, dull from A 2 Z, worst being the actors awfully directed. 2/10 for visualFX...and yet.

While Jodie Foster is not as robotic as, say, Meryl Streep, she is even less able to transcend a weak script (or less campily entertaining as she inevitably fails in the attempt). And this script is seriously bad. Again with the exception of the pair of brokers, the characters are so colorless and lacking in depth and context (even for a B movie thriller) that it would be difficult to care what happens even if the action were not so preposterously stupid. All told, another pathetic, depressing assault on art from Hollywood's A-list. Expand

This movie had a hackneyed plot and little action or suspense. Ill-conceived story and the highlight is Dwight Yokum's appearance as a robber. I do not understand how it was rated so highly.

I do not understand how it was rated so highly. I would sooner see "What I did last summer..." or "Scream" a thousand times more than this one movie again. Expand

It started out well with the thrilling, white knuckle, real estate action.

However, the begining is incidently where the movie crumbles into the land of asinine plot developments, poor casting (Forrest Whitaker, the poor, downtroden, blue collar bad guy turned teddy bear) and strained credulity (the propane scene for example.) I now have a reason to act upon my decision to quit renting anything with the "Lifetime" formula. Expand
