Maybe because I haven't seen the original yet
28 September 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

But why the low score here on IMDb? I like this one. From the get go you are hooked. And as it branches with the multiple stories, you know it will crash together and get interesting.

And the casting is fantastic. I just can't help myself when Abe found out he is trapped. And the expression when he can't find the car also.

There is a moment that felt like a Cohen brother movie when there was a pause before shooting happens in the cottage. No crazy editing to build up, it just happens - this way is more realistic for me.

And the ending shot is fantastic also. So what's not to like? Maybe 1 or 2 character as questionable casting choice? Maybe I need to see the original ?
