Loved it!
21 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie kept me on my feet, I really didn't guess what was going on. I've seen a lot of Ivan's movies and he is always so good, as he is here. Obviously the leading lady always falls for the con just as the con knows she will. That's no different from any other movie though. There are some predictable moments in the movie, you see it coming a mile away. The movie was so good that I really didn't mind overlooking the clichéd scenes. The acting from some of the characters could use a little help, but with all that said this is still an enjoyable suspense filled movie that I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. A good Saturday night thriller.
