The characters were interesting, the script was suspenseful, and the film didn't have any delusions about itself. It's not exactly going to change your life, but portions of the movie are far from standard Hollywood fare so that the whole project seems like more of an artistic outing rather than a blockbuster attempt. David Hyde Pierce shows his chops in a role that is presented (type-cast, probably) as your typical yuppie peabody but reveals new layers underneath. Despite its critic rating here which suggests that it's totally mediocre, I would argue that it is at least worth watching. Expand

Let's face it, most movies today, the vast majority, use standard story telling techniques and cliche's to tell their similar stories, but it was refreshing to see a "ride" come back to a modern movie. Yes I thought about the two or threeLet's face it, most movies today, the vast majority, use standard story telling techniques and cliche's to tell their similar stories, but it was refreshing to see a "ride" come back to a modern movie. Yes I thought about the two or three twists that may come and was right in two of them, but it was unravelled in a playful way, which was very refreshing and original for a thriller. I really enjoyed David Hyde-Pierce in this film, and hope we see a lot more of him in the future. The movie opens in a great way, setting the tone of a heist, action and drops it nicely into a "stage play" format. I loved it. Expand

This is a very interesting movie, that doesn't follow all the clichés and keeps the audience interested until the end. I really enjoyed it since it has no boring parts, you never know whats coming in the next scene.
