Margaret Hall: We don't have the money.
Alek 'Al' Spera: You have to get the money. Is that not clear enough?

Alek 'Al' Spera: Have you spoken with your husband?
Margaret Hall: He can't be reached. He's on a carrier somewhere in the nor - This is truly none of your business.
Alek 'Al' Spera: What about the old man? Well, you have to try harder.

What a waste of time!
13 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sorry to disappoint those who liked it, but to each his/her own. I saw it advertised on HBO and it was given 3 stars. I like Tilda Swinton and Tahoe is a gorgeous place so I thought OK this is going to be good.

WRONG... It was trite, predictable, the acting was awful (by some of the actors) and had blasé stereotypes. Maybe, just maybe if this had been a period piece, set in the 60's, the big "threat" would have been more believable.

There was NOTHING I liked about this film! I felt so dumb because, as I have done with other films, I kept waiting for it to redeem itself. That NEVER happened. All I did was waste time and walk away feeling cheated and grossly mislead by the 3 stars.

I guess if I had to say a good thing about it? I didn't fork over $14.50 hard earned dollars to see this one.

There I just saved you some valuable time.
