(at around 55 mins) After the close up of Lockland and Sandra losing their balance on the bridge they go to a wide shot showing Carden following them. He then is seen helping Sandra up. At that point one hand crosses the other and he appears to have no handcuffs on. Realizing his mistake the actor quickly returns his hands to handcuffed position. See more »

Very poorly written dialogue makes it unbearable...
This is proof that an otherwise good movie can be hampered by not enough script re-writes (or maybe too many?). The dialogue is laughable and laudable.
The writer's style is such that the lines are delivered in a very staccato style: A quips to B, B responds with quip to A. There are no real "conversations" in the movie, and it makes it had to develop any of the back-story of the characters. "Quips" about someone's past are usually quickly dismissed into the script, never to be seen again.
Some of the movie made me laugh, it was so poorly written. In a scene where a death occurs, there was no emotional outburst from their family member. It was crazy, and felt very rushed, like the director or writer was trying to push us forward quickly to the next scene, without slowing the camera down and exploring the actor's emotions.
Badly written. C-
