Watch this if...you want a movie to spark your interest and then slowly put you to sleep.

Acting/Casting: 5* - I love Ron Perlman and without his acting and character in this movie, this could have been much worse. Nothing else to talk about but average acting by an overall average cast.

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 4* - The directing is nothing to brag about in this film. It doesn't appear to have a clear ending in mind and leaves the audience wondering why they wasted their time with such a pointless and unsatisfying film. I did like a few of the scenes where they incorporate stories into the puzzle, but not much else.

Plot/Characters: 2* - Wow. Since there was not much of a plot, there isn't much to say. A down on his luck guy is offered money to euthanize a man by choking him, but in the meantime struggles with the notion and falls in love with a waitress along the way.

Entertainment Value: 3* - As I said, I feel asleep three times while trying to get through this movie. The beginning grabs your interest and the ending lets you down. The in between isn't that entertaining either.

My Score: 5+4+2+3 = 14/4 = 3.5
