An Entertaining And Decent Movie.
8 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie advertised and thought i would give it a go.And i was glad i did,as i was entertained from start to finish.I thought Maria Bello and Stephen Dorff played their parts really well.I always enjoyed Maria acting since i saw her in Payback.I thought the direction and camera work was great.The scenes were really played out well.The plot was simple enough to follow.This is a movie i would recommend for an entertaining night.This movie would have been a bit better if it was just a little longer and was more drawn out.But all in all its a really good decent movie,i would watch again.Give it a go,you wont be disappointed.
