A very disturbing,and scary movie,but if you feels like you are ready to see it,give this a chance.
13 August 2009 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

For me personally that is always a real torture to watch type of movies,like this was,I feel myself so lucky from some reasons why I had seen a movie,without the danger of somebody wants to execute me.

Sharon Stone is absolutely great in this role,and I saying this against,I'am absolutely not a fan of her acting,and movies.

All the way I have to say,be careful,and think again before you see this,cause this film is enough strong to change your mood,and maybe is not for everybody.

I feels like the script wants to be independent,about the question,but it is not work well all the time,but when they really wants to say they has personal opinions,that is also directly keeps distance.

7/10
