When Grace is found dead, Harrison becomes Rowena's prime suspect. With the support of her hacker friend and former colleague Miles Haley, Ro is hired for a temporary work in Harrison's agency to get close to the executive and investigate his life.
I was looking forward to this film, although critics panned it. I heard that there was a twist ending in this film and you know this gets me excited. What if it was like "Dead Silence"? The movie was bad with a good twist ending? Actually, the answer was vice versa: The movie was good with a great twist ending.
Sure, some maybe call if ridiculous and preposterous but when you're being entertained, who cares? This is a stylish techno-thriller and there are some suspenseful moments. The twists and turns work for me and so does the performances.
Maybe it's another forgettable thriller, yeah. Maybe it's a preposterous, A-list cast, overwrought thriller, yes. But maybe it's an entertaining, stylish thriller which will keep your attention until the satisfying twist ending.
