The central idea of the movie is very intriguing. Actually it does sound like a very good backbone for a novel (I have no idea what this was based on, but a book about this might be better then the movie). The central character is obviously "cursed" from the get-go. And still he manages to survive somehow.
But of course that wouldn't be enough. And while the story unravels (almost?) completely as you expect it to unravel, it still is a fine viewing experience. It's the actors that are doing a fine job and a script, that while not new and/or surprising it still delivers the goods as you would say. A fine thriller then
