    Not the usual action movie. It's too odd for that. Based on a true story, it has the weirdness of real life, which is good. But also like real life, it has that funny way of not making much sense or being all that enjoyable. show more

    In its focus on an ordinary family facing a nightmarish scenario, Snitch is a terrifying but relatable story. show more

    This is a well-measured thriller that had me squirming in my seat and aching for the success of its protagonists. This movie needs to be seen. Best of 2013 so far - no joke.
