While it has a few flaws, they were minor enough to not detract from the story. I would have scored this an 8 or 9, but some things early in the movie were out of character with the rest of the movie. They just did not sit well with me.
I am not going to give a spoiler about what it was, you will have to watch to see.
I found this to be a really good cat and mouse movie. There have been many in the past, nothing new here, but this one really held my attention.
Other reviewers have pooh poohed the movie for being too slow, for me the pace was fine, it had a good plot and the back story telling was well done and explained things.
Well worth seeing and I would definitely watch it again.
