    Dawson digs deep and nails every nuance, making the dizzying suspense resonate with raw emotion. She is, in a word, electrifying. Even when the wheels come off the too-busy plot, so is the movie. show more

    Stupid movie. It was a weak story line with the twist crammed into the last 20 minutses. James McAvoy is good but Rosario Dawson was really annoying.

    It was a good psychological thriller in the same vein as Momento, House of Games an The Usual Suspects....those four movies are better but this one is very good. The three main actors were top notch. I do have a crush on Vincent Cassel, though!
