Something is off - but in a good way. Well even that may not be the right way to describe things. But you know I'm not a detective (btw. something that late in the movie is something I actually really cringed at, was the behavior of a police official, it was so out of any logical realm, it almost hurt .. the movie), so I have to rely on what the characters deliver and what I can make of it.

Some may compare this with earlier work of the director, but that might not be fair to him or the movie at hand. I do think that this is anything but ordinary and it does show the whole way through. Like our main character, there is more than meets the eye. Apart from some flaws and clichés that are being delivered, this is pretty rock solid and suspenseful from start to finish
