Don't be fooled by those who say this movie was weak. True, it was a low-budget film that never got into theaters. At the same time, it was suspenseful. The best part is that it is not predictable. You know of course that there will be a twist at the end, and it's exciting to find out what it'll be. Marsden did an excellent job at captivating the audience and making them feel sorry for him, even though we know he lies so much. Both Marsden and Speedman are the bad guys in the movie. Two antagonists and no real protagonist. Those who say it's homophobic are full of crap. I'm a gay man, and I like to have sex (in fact, I kept wanting the two to do it while Marsden was tied up), just as Marsden wants sex, knows he can get it, and does whatever he can to have it. If the movie were untrue to life about how gay men go out and have sex frequently, then the rates of new HIV infection would be dropping incredibly, since everyone would use protection. People get drunk and people have unprotected sex; it's a terrible reality, and this movie portrays it.
