    A stylish thriller so highly strung it zings, gives us Hopkins, an actor at the top of his game, in material that's only middling. show more

    The movie entertains, but it's a shallow entertainment where you have no rooting interest in the outcome. show more

    This hugely entertaining thriller is what's needed to banish a winter-long case of movie blues.
