Storyline

Defence attorney Robert Stern can scarcely believe his eyes when he meets with the mysterious client who has summoned him to a godforsaken industrial park. To his astonishment, the defendant is a ten-year-old boy, a fragile child with a chronic illness who insists that he was a murderer in a former life. Robert Stern's surprise turns into horror when he searches the cellar described by Simon and finds a human skeleton whose skull has been split by an axe. But this is only the beginning. Simon tells him of other victims whose bodies have lain undiscovered for years. Suddenly, the present becomes murderously dangerous as well... Written by Sebastian Fitzek

Generic, but ...
28 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

... still one of the better movies Eric Roberts seems to have done in a while now! Of course that shouldn't count in a vote you cast, but since I like him, I added one extra point to the 4 I would've normally given this movie. Acting is decent enough, story not too bad either. Relationship kinda work, while pace is as you'd imagine it to be.

Of course the movie will not really surprise you with many things (though I did like the general idea with the kid). The ending does explain what happens, though you'd imagine someone would've thought of that earlier in the story. The movie seems to have a lot of German money in it, which is obvious by the casting they did. It's nice seeing some people that are identified/known for something else breaking their image in this. OK, but not as good as the story could've been
