They find clues and leads unknown to them, and secrets from the past come to light as they start discovering the real, chilling truth. Meanwhile, Jess, dissatisfied with the law, decides to take matters into her own hands and track down the killer, no matter what lengths she has to go to. Written by Blake Slayton

Love the original and love the the remake
26 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a rare beast a remake that is actually pretty good. Although it it isn't as good as the original, lacking the slow burn nature of it, it's still a well made and entertaining film.

It's pretty similar to the original but the shorter running time means it's faster paced which does diminish it's substance.

What makes this worth watching even for those who have seen the original is the acting. It boasts a top rate cast with Chiwetel Ejiofor and Julia Roberts particularly good.

For those who have seen the original this will hold no surprises but for those who haven't seen it, it is well worth watching with a great ending.
