    The main problem with this treatise on racial politics undercover as an exercise in suspense is that the director, Neil LaBute, didn't write the script. show more

    Samuel Jackson plays the predictable buffoon. He\'s a much better actor than the character he portrays in this movie. I don\'t recommend wasting money renting this movie.

    Awful, awful, awful. Terrible plot. Sam Jackson's character made absolutely no sense whatsoever. I will never get that time back. Please save your time not to mention your money. Skip this movie!!!
