Meyer: Every once in a proverbial blue moon we stumble across an author who may verily change our lives. Someone from we know not where, perhaps even Dante's own paradise, who assembles the words that we must read and hear. None of your scribbler of syntax, but a heavenly scribe with powerful ideas. An absolute and true author. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Thomas Carter.

Really good, very dark
13 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has gotten a lot of bad reviews and i have no idea why. The twist were at the right place and everyone says the acting was bad. Forrest Whitaker always KILLS everything he does and Anthony Mackie was PERFECT. People say Mike Epps is just a comedian but he was really good in this role. This movie actually had me confused and shocked at some point but i don't regret watching this at all. I really wish i would've went to the movie theatre to see this. I recommend this movie to anybody who loves movies that make you think and that don't just hand their ending out to you on a silver platter. My advice watch this on a rainy day, turn the lights off and pay attention. Hope this helps.
