absolute perfect, 13 July 2012
Author: popor_revolusi from jakarta, indonesia

movie strength is in his scenario, absolute perfect! minimum appropriate action though not the opening scene, but this is pure crime thriller genre. beginning of the story do not be surprised fitting monotonic plasticity. because it was intent of this movie. even when there are scenes that seem to make this flawed movie, the scene turned out to actually be a major part in solving the case of this film.

we are forced to go to think and be mocked by the storyline, but a SUPER surprise ending.

only in the 108 minutes we presented the changes of human character, moral values​​, compassion, sacrifice, dedication, emotion.

very rarely find a movie without a flaw like this. all sync from the beginning until the end.

unique in this film a lot of deception join us in thinking, even things that are not directly part of the core story, too, though in the end will see a correlation with the core story,

pure genius. ! I LOVE THIS MOVIE!
