Pretty effective
3 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is definitely a hard film to maybe not see as a gimmick. I mean, look at its premise and set-up. To my surprise though, it's incredibly effective, The cinematography and directing manage to find a really great way to keep us entertained and it for it never to get boring. It's a pretty big revelation. I've also never liked Tom Hardy more, easily the best performance I've ever seen him give. He totally makes the film work and makes it as effective as it is. Props to him for keeping us so intrigued with his portrayal here. I don't know what else to say about it, but I definitely highly recommend it. Pretty successful experiment, kudos.
