Not a by-the-book thriller.
27 February 2004 | by vertigo_14See all my reviews

The plot is far too intrictate and involves many twists for a brief plot synopsis. It is a murder mystery involving five suspects, three of which are plotting an insurance scam. And it is far from predictable, and always has the viewers changing their suspicions as to who the culprit is or how the crime(s) will occur. And unlike most thrillers, there are no innocent characters. And no hereos.

I must admit that I was initially fooled into thinking that this was going to be a waste of two hours watching once against, another generic thriller. The first murder takes place at the beginning of the film and presents the setting for the remainder of the filn. Upon seeing it, however, I thought oh god! This is going to be a waste of a two hours. The suspense and everything appeared so generic. But this movie is far from a by-the-book thriller. Additionally, it's a mix of humor and suspense and drama. The British sure can write a good horror/supsense film.

It is definitely worth watching.
