It's not as bad as they say.
15 September 2009 | by b-malleySee all my reviews

This movie is simple; if you saw the previews then you pretty much saw the movie. If you saw any other movie about obsessed chick stalkers then you saw this movie. The directors and producers get a big fat "F" for originality and creativity. However credit needs to be given to Idris Elba because he convincingly made me feel bad for his character, great acting. Ali Larder was obviously hot and her usual temptress self, however I must add that she played her role so well that towards the end of the movie I didn't care how hot she was, I too wanted to just get away from she creeped me out so much. Hope I didn't give anything away. P.S. this movie should not be ranked a 4.
