I thought it was going to be a big action movie, but it was quite different. It is a very dark thriller.
While it still had some action this wasn't the main focus. It is very story orientated. Plenty of good twists in the plot line.
The acting was good. Except for at the beginning when there is a kid acting but he was still OK. Laurence Fishburne did well as past reviews have mentioned. Another good actor in this one was Jeff Goldblum, the Lawyer. The rest of the cast were good as well.
Overall I thought it was an interesting and dark thriller which should prove entertaining even with some brutal violence.
