Goofs

(at around 59 mins) The couple have a conversation where their lips alternate between moving and not moving. It's either very strange editing or these people are telepathic. "Anne, let's go" (lips move) "What are we going to do, Tom?" (lips do not move) "Where are we going to go? (lips do not move) "We have one place where we can go" (lips do not move) "At least for a few hours." (Lips move again!) See more »

not recommendable
2 November 2014 | by sof_grSee all my reviews

Watching the trailer, the movie seems very promising, it had a lot of potential. However I evaluate it as so-so. The cast was good and there were some well done and imaginative killings particularly at the middle to the end of the movie. But the whole movie was kind of complicated. Some facts weren't clear to understand and some absurd scenes were just to serve the plot. At last, there wasn't anything new and it had nothing to offer, except of so little action as to justify the classification of the movie to an action-thriller movie. Unfortunately, I think that the time I spent to watch the film was a waste of time and I wouldn't recommend it.
