Man, this movie was a treat to watch. Superb script, acting is very believable and most of all its a fast paced well written thriller that is not to be missed. Cinematography and editing was top of the line. I was quite surprised to not find a lot of reviews out here. I had to create a new account to post my review here. Direction is excellent and I personally loved the unique way in which the story was told. There are also some elements of humor through out, which I think was done very well. It's on of the best movies I have seen from 2014.
All in all a great movie that will leave you highly entertained and pleased. Go watch it and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
I am giving this movie a 9.5/10.
