Don't be fooled by the high IMDb rating for this movie as it's just a sorry attempt at a 'thriller'.
All thriller clichés pass the revue, so you're watching with a 'been there seen that' attitude. The 'script' (really, there was a script here ?) is laughable and has so many holes that you wonder at the end of the movie: "really, he did all this but couldn't come up with 1,000,000 easier solutions to avoid this mess ?".
The acting is bad and none of the characters is portrayed in a way that you would sympathise with them.
All of the above results in a movie that's watchable, but not enjoyable.
