After the coda, credits start appearing. After the producer credits, an epilogue is shown, of one of the criminals (obviously uncaught) shopping at a bookstore, and picking up a book by the protagonist describing the criminal operation and its end. See more »
I watched this not expecting much, and yeah some of the acting was a bit dubious but overall I was very impressed. When I started watching it I sat there with my finger on the stop button, but that button was never pressed as I was truly hooked. I really felt for the lead character and thought he played the part well. I was also surprised by a few twists here and there which would give Hollywood a run for its money.
For a movie that was obviously on a budget (made with help from the lottery) I think it can stand proud with the multi-million pound big boys from the USA.
A good thriller worth watching
