The term malignant narcissist is used to describe Idris Elba's character by a member of the parole board, Idris uses the same term to describe a suspect in the first episode of Luther. See more »
Colin is an escaped convict, he murdered two correctional officers while escaping from state custody. There would be a nation wide manhunt for him, his picture and information would be all over the news and social media sites and there would advisories on the radio in Tennessee, the surrounding states and the whole mid to lower east coast. Alexis, Colin's ex girlfriend would have been notified by the police of his escape and even possible had a police car posted at her house. Yet she is completely surprised when she sees Colin in her house. After Colin murders Alexis he leaves her body where he killed her and then later returns with Terry and her children. It is very unlikely her body laid there undiscovered for such a long period of time, a police officer would have found her body before Colin returned, since she would be someone the cops would be watching because of Colin's escape.

I'm sorry. I don't mean to bother you. I just lost control of my car and wrecked it and...
Are you all right?
I'm good. I just had a crash. Do you think I could use your phone?
You live around here?
Yeah, over on River Road... I don't even need to come in. I'll stand right here. You can hand the phone, shut the door.
I'm feeding my daughter. I'll be right back.
All right, thank you

An alternate take of Terry's "Fuck you.... I said, 'Fuck you'" was shot for television, with the dialogue changed to "Go to hell.... I said, 'Go to hell.'" See more »
I'm pretty sure this is not what watchers expected, but the poor decisions that led to the ultimate fate of the characters were comical. I know this is supposed to be a suspense film, but the "twist" or "unravel" is far from shocking and a bit disappointing. The acting was okay, the story line could have undoubtedly been better, but I would think that I'd be more than happy to see this on DVD months later vs paying almost $23 for a theater run. If you're on the fence, I'd say climb back to your side and wait to rent on DVD, you won't be missing anything by waiting. I'd even go as far to say you won't be missing much by passing all together...I think the hype was more exciting than the movie itself.
