A very good crime thriller
26 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

The setting reminded me a bit of a game called "Heavy Rain". It's not the same, but the vibe has some similarities. The main actor is really good and we have an interesting interaction between him and other characters. The main bad guy has a great motive: Plus he doesn't see himself as a bad guy (a thing that other movies have also explored).

Interesting themes (redemption, revenge and more) get tangled in a complex but still pretty reasonable scheme of things. It never gets too complicated and some people might feel this is too predictable (which it sort of is). Not everyone might like the way it ends, but it seems inevitable to me. A more than decent effort and a very tense movie
