not nearly as compelling as i thought it would be,
25 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

and the secret is alluded to,even telegraphed a bit too early on for my taste.that sort takes away from one avenue of suspense.the rest of the story is fairly predictable,though it has a few minor surprises.i found it actually quite depressing.i even felt it had a bit of an oppressive feel to it.the synopsis on the back of the DVD cover makes it seem much more compelling and dramatic than it actually is.i mostly thought it was boring.maybe you have to be in a certain mood or frame of mind to appreciate it.if so,i clearly wasn't in the right mood or frame of mind.i just know i was glad when it was over.i don't see myself watching this movie again.for me,The Secret would have been best left untold.4/10
