an okay movie.... when you suspend disbelief to the fullest
6 December 2004 | by fireyhopeSee all my reviews

the movies starts off with quit an interesting way. Then slowly and slowly they hit you with plot holes! The premise is interesting it's like a duel between hypnotists to see who can hypnotise people better. Thats what i liked about it, but the story was so executed weird and unrealistic there isn't really any credibility left for the movie except with exceptional actors, potential, and a interesting premise. Near the beginning you had some real interesting ideas, like where the hypnotist left clues for the police. I never suspected that and that was a great twist but right in the middle your bumped with this major plothole of why and how they can preform working together without any communication whatsoever.

If only the story was better.

anyways another great thing i found about the movie is that though the drama is cookiecuttered it's romantic and it's interesting and it had chemistry, especially the love story about the hypnotist and his wife.

overall 5/10 rent it if you must watch it. i do not recommend this to anybody but people who are just bored and have nothing else to do but to watch a decent movie
