Man steals, man gets caught, man is killed and he tries in death to protect his family and avenge his death.

If I could give this movie a -10 stars I would. Absolutely painful to watch and horrible acting. Not one actor stood out in this incoherent snooze fest called a thriller. Please don't waste your time and should you choose to ignore this review and watch anyway, don't say you weren't warned. I'd list all the things that I didn't like about he story and plot but that would take another 90 minutes and i've already wasted 90 minutes watching this film. You may stop reading at this point because I do not wish to waste your time but unfortunately IMDb requires that you leave at least 10 lines of text before a review will be posted so I am forced to continue writing. Perhaps this concept worked better on paper but the adaptation of this story into a movie was an epic fail. Please do yourself a favor and avoid this movie. The story was not captivating enough to hold your interest and it only raised questions throughout the movie. The characters are boring without substance and completely forgettable. I kept watching in the hopes that some of my questions would be answered. Unfortunately they were answered. I use the word unfortunately because somehow the writer believed that a flashback to each scene which raised questions, would be answered with a solution in which clues are left by the deceased spirit to himself in the day before his death. Please Please do not watch this movie. I
