Excellent Movie
24 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best and most original films I've seen in a long time. To be honest, I don't think I've seen a drama that could keep me interested for so long. I was hooked immediately. I wanted to know what would happen and where the movie would go the entire time. It wasn't like one of those dramas you see on TV--this was one ultimate thriller! Filmmakers should make more dramas like this; a struggle of power and sexuality is something men would actually watch. I appreciated this movie and I really felt that the movie, much like the book, was something that would entice many people who can't stand the drama and sitcoms people are force-fed on television.

And the PC game was a real testament to the originality and thoughtfulness of the makers. The game allowed the player to decide on an ending and take some fun psychological tests in them. I especially liked it because I got two different endings and I enjoyed the way it left me hanging off, wanting more, but in a way, answering all I wanted to know. You really have to see it.

Be warned, feminists won't like the movie; the theme is very distrustful of women overall.
