I don't want to give anything away.
21 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked the movie. It keep u guessing and its a job thriller. who ever says that it isn't good needs to reconsider their ability to rank movies. I would give it two thumbs up. Plus Norman Reedus is a totally amazing actor and he really brings his character to the screen. It doesn't hurt that he's totally gorgeous either. Luke Wilson also does a very good job because he has a serious roll and he does an amazing job. The movie will have you asking yourself what is going to happen next because it takes so many twists and turn. when i saw this movie at first I was going to ignore it but as I was watching it I found that I could not turn away from it because it just has this effect on you where you don't want to blink for fear of missing a minute of the story.
