18 July 2008 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Well kind of literally. This movie (thriller) revolves around three characters who have something in common. A secret from the past. But don't be afraid, this thriller won't really stretch anything or will leave you in the open for too long (a flashback will come along and explain something) ...

Of course this can also be seen as a bad sign. And unfortunately the movie does suffer from some of the failings a thriller can have. They don't drag the movie completely off the rail, but they sure make it a less stronger impact, than it could be. The actors are good, but are not so good, that they elevate and/or make you forget about the story flaws.
