    The problem with this movie is its linearity. The protagonist is a manipulative single minded jerk with no real insight and that doesn't change. It's aggravating watching him, there is no growth, the plot is obvious. A disappointment.

  1. It’s smoothly written and smartly paced, and Michael Douglas is riveting.
  2. This attractive cast may help get an audience, but they will surely puzzle over such a downward-spiraling story that lacks inner logic.

    A movie of no small generosity: It offers audiences the pleasures of a screenplay whose every acerbic line is firmly rooted in character, and it hands Michael Douglas one of his best roles in years.
