    Gosling: excellent. Hopkins: same old. I could have done without the creepy lighting every time the two came face to face -- yeah, we get it, the cat and the mouse. I don't need to have the chills so cheesily cranked up for me. Another carp -- the woman-lawyer-boss-lover. Very stereotyped portrayal; are we supposed to believe that years of law school and professional accomplishment go poof the second she spots a boy hunk? Also, why is Gosling's character in such a rush to save a brain-dead woman (other than to enable the final "twist")?
