Unexpected

Take " Dead zone" and " Manhunter" and you have Solace.

I won't tell you much about the plot but the film is in the title.

Wasn't entirely sure what I was going to watch because of the trailer but was very pleasantly surprised.

I left the theatre wondering who was the bad guy...or indeed IF there was a bad guy.Fantastic cinematography and use of special effects with blistering performances all around.

A number of reviews have mentioned that this copies a lot of genres but for me it nods a wink in homage to psycho-thrillers to which the director obviously adores.

Absolutely riveting direction takes this from a Sunday matinée to a Saturday night blockbuster which Tony Hopkins comfortably revels in.

Colin Farrell is superb as the protagonist ( or is he)?

I challenge you to not enjoy this for what it is.

Bring on the DVD so I can watch again and sumise!!
