I must say, I'm highly offended by the person calling this movie "A Racist Piece of Trash" because they said in their comment, and I quote, "I am sorry but there are very few African- American men in this world that wouldn't jump at the chance to sleep with a white woman." Umm... hello? YOU are racist for that comment alone.
I actually found the movie to be pretty entertaining and I was into it the whole time. I felt angry, upset, and tense, because I was wrapped in the drama. What struck me most what the portrayal by Ali Larter of a woman who truly BELIEVED that the man was in love with her. I expected it to be like other movies of this type, where the woman is intentionally sabotaging the man's life. I was frustrated by her character in a good way. It was believable and real.
I didn't expect this to be a riveting high-quality film. I expected it to be entertaining, gripping, and that's exactly what it was. Never was I bored. Anyone who expected greatness from this film shouldn't be allowed to review, we all knew it wasn't an Oscar film.
So, for what it is, I thought it was great. And the not-so-subtle Christian Louboutin sponsorship... Fantastic:)
