What's in a name?By snoopygirl (1 review) , 16 Feb 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]As a fairly clever and engaging thriller, this would have got 4. 5 stars however, it lost half a point for the bad name, and another half for the ridiculous gratuitous underwear shots of Jamie Bell's girlfriend.
Yes, Sam Worthington's accent is all over the place and some of the lesser known actors are a little hammy. Some of the stunts would be impossible in real life, but nobody ever said that this type of film was anything but escapism.
There is a good ensemble cast here, and the plot runs along at a fair pace. I can't say much about the story without ruining it for you but, suffice it to say that it's a story of good vs evil for our technologically savvy age. I guessed quite a few of the twists and turns but I've seen and read a lot of thrillers, so I was probably ahead of the game.
All in all, a good effort for this genre, and very enjoyable. I'd watch it again.

Could have been so much moreBy a customer , 24 May 2013A waste of some good acting talent, it needed more grit and less cheesyness, some original ideas but way too slow, boring and predictable.
Good watchBy a customer , 21 May 2013More twists and turns than Colossus at thorpe park. great little film that takes you for a ride. by that i mean at no point are you able to accurately guess where the film is going to go. You think you do, but that's when it takes you on a tangent. Deffo worth a watch.
tummy tumbles & finger tinglesBy vickig0306 (429 reviews) from Halifax , 19 May 2013Really liked this film. Elizabeth Banks is a great actress who appears to be able to turn her hand to anything. Great suspense & found I had that tingly feeling & tummy turns just like I was on that very ledge!
Not one for the pigeons.By EssexD (70 reviews) , 16 May 2013Much better than it sounds. A suprisingly taught thriller which does what it says on the tin! Enough twists to keep you interested . Much better than many hyped up thrillers that are available. Very watchable.
Worth a watchBy a customer , 15 May 2013A few twists and turns, predictable in places, not in others but generally well worth a watch. Although it won't get anywhere near my top 10 favourite films I certainly enjoyed it and it's good way of passing an hour and a half on a rainy day.
