So predictableBy a customer , 26 May 2013Formulaic and predictable, Cape Fear part 2, could have written the script for this myself. Surprised at Nicole Kidman getting involved in this dross.
Dead DullBy Sleat (79 reviews) , 20 Feb 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]If you like a simple story, simply told with a conventional progression from beginning to middle to end, this might appeal. If you don't like surprises you might be pleased that you can predict with ease where the story will go. But even so, you probably do expect a thriller to attempt to thrill. This one is so not-going-to-make-you-jump (ever, not once) that you could call it visual mogadon. At least the end might provoke a reaction. But then that 's because the obligatory twist-at-the-end is so lame and ludicrous that you'll probably laugh in derision.
maybe a remake would be betterBy a customer , 16 Dec 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHidewell I love nicole kidman but she manage to play the whole movie with the same expresion on her face. Her husband is a total idiot to leave her alone with a stranger who he didt like at all. She was so stupid to show the crazy guy that she was going to throw overbord the keys. Well I suppose without stupid people making stupid mistakes there wouldnt be scary/thriller movies.
Quite entertainingBy AmberStoner (7 reviews) from Haywards Heath , 13 Sep 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideFor an old thriller this movie wasn't bad at all. Predictable yet a perfectly enjoyable film to watch snuggled up in bed. The cast was great and the seclusion of only having three people made it really feel as if there were no escape. Only bad part was of course the dog getting shot; was so obvious but still sad all the same.
not badBy BobCharly (8 reviews) , 03 Sep 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHidei thought this was ok. a few moments i was yelling at the screen, for example, when she doesn't shoot him after she drugs him or when the husband leaves his wife on thier boat with a random stranger. was quite tense at times though, and i didn't dislike it.
