Goofs

The detective mentions getting a subpoena to search a suspect's apartment. Subpoenas are used to obtain records or compel someone to appear in court. If a dwelling is to be searched, a search warrant is the proper item to use. A seasoned detective would know the difference between the two. See more »

Tame thriller that we've seen a 100 times before
31 July 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

In more recent years we have had 'THE BOY NEXT DOOR (2015)' with Jennifer Lopez 'OBSESSED (2009)' with Idris Elba and 'NO GOOD DEED (2015)' also with Idris Elba but playing against Taraji P Henson instead of Beyonce.

You know the charming stranger who's actually slightly insane kind of movie that attempts at being both thrilling and sexy.

And where as I enjoyed the aforementioned movies I can't say the same about this one.

It's not the worst of it's kind or anything but it's so unremarkable in every way, there isn't even scenes that could make it enjoyable in 'so bad it's good' kind of way either, it's just really bland.

And that's a shame because I like all the main actors in it MICHAEL EALY, SANNA LATHAN and MORRIS CHESTNUT are all accomplished actors in other films, but the problem with this movie is granted not the cast but the script.

As you can probably understand 'the perfect guy' is not all that perfect, but he's so incredibly hollowly written. The twist is so out of the blue and it doesn't make any sense with how the character has been portrayed until this point. And the reaction, everything just goes way to quick. 'I don't know who you are anymore!' cringe-alert.

But that's not to say if the transition would have been a more smoother and natural one that it would have been much better.

As far as the sexiness goes, Sanna Lathan shows more skin on the poster than she does in the movie.

So yeah, not even that can they get right.
