Warning: Side effects
11 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

While the movie really begins intriguing enough and has a tension overall that is decent/good enough, it still never achieves to become great. The main actor is someone you might have seen before, he has played plenty of roles and he's doing a great job here, trying to elevate the material.

But the David vs. Goliath thing isn't as well executed as it could be. The movie trying to be a bit more clever than it actually is. Even the ending can't change this. I liked it, though I'm guessing that some might find it even more disappointing than the film up to that point. Still the acting and the tension are good and I have seen worse thrillers.
