A Good Movie!
10 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie. Other reviewers mentioned that Cuba Gooding appeared bored during this movie. I liked the premise and the acting. Everyone did an very good job in their roles. I would recommend it to those that enjoy an action flick with an unusual story line. It held my attention and the ending was an emotional moment given all that I had learned about the characters during the course of the movie. Cuba Gooding was outstanding and did a real interpretation of the character that he was portraying.

I was pleasantly surprised with the entire movie and would tell all my friends to rent it.
