Breath takingBy a customer from England , 06 Feb 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]A really great script. the plot has so many unexpected twists. the action is fast pased and nobody is miraculously saved, everyone gets to suffer in a way or another and there aren't many special effects, all these making it look more realistic. i would strongly recommend this film to the persons who like a film that will intrigue them until the end.

A Lesson In How To Make A ThrillerBy Eivom (18 reviews) from Thornton-Cleveleys , 20 Jan 2013One of the best films I've seen in a long time. It takes you down a certain road and you blindly follow, only to be dramatically dragged down an unexpected back alley at the end. It's a brilliant twist and one you really should have seen coming, but the acting and story line are played with such perfection, the end really does come as a surprise. Jennifer Anniston is the best I've seen her, I didn't think she was that good an actress but she proves me wrong in this. If she doesn't get picked for more dramatic roles after this, then it will be a travisty. The only thing I will say on a slightly negative side is that there are a couple of plot holes. They aren't huge and I suppose with a little bit of thought you could explain them away. As an example, without giving anything away, there is a policeman on the case that had a few chances to work out exactly what was going on and who was doing it, if proper police procedure was followed. This is a fantastic thriller and one that will remain a favourite of mine.
Great friday night thriller!By a customer , 19 Oct 2012A great friday night thriller! Good performance by Anniston- nice to see her do something different than a rom-com!
I didn't think the twist was predictable at all and it did keep you on the edge of your seat at times!
Loved it!!!!By a customer , 13 Oct 2012Great twist, took 30 minutes to kick in but really glad I continued with the film - add it to your list today
A Stonking Good Thriller!By Stinger (38 reviews) from Rochdale , 04 Oct 2012This film was excellent and a toss up whether it was four or four and a half stars.
The director wastes no time getting into the film's plot a therefore keeps the runtime down to a little over 90 minutes, which I like. Far too many films take 20 minutes to get into the plot and the run time ends up being 120 minutes +.
The plot was very good and injuected a whole new facet the genre which took time to figure out as it was well camoflaged but teased you to keep thinking about what would happen next.
Another reviewer has commented on the lack of CGI which I think tends to ruin films, I'll say no more so as not to spoil the film for others.
The 'bad guy' is very well played as well, he makes himself completely abhorrent. The film takes several twists and turns an then the director starts stitching it all together building up to a crescendo of a finish.
Give it a go!!
One of the best films seen in ages!By psychictasha (42 reviews) from Bexhill-on-Sea , 12 Sep 2012Fantastic film! My husband and I loved it to bits and cant wait to watch it again. It is one of those films that you can see over and over again. It is exciting, thrilling, lots of twists, keeps you on the edge of your seat, pulls your emotional strings and makes you think. Love this and would highly recommend it!
