I liked it. The acting was great. The movie had a few twists that I didn't expect. Didn't have the usual expected ending so it made the movie seem like it was based on a true story. Which It wasn't, All said and done it held my attention the whole time, I'd see it again.

I was so excited to see this movie due to some of the actors.. However, the whole movie seemed to drag. It was a good plot, but I wish I hadn't wasted my money. YOU be the judge!.

The movie was fine but seriously compromised by the absolutely horrible seats. If the seats hadn't been so bad, then I think I would have enjoyed the movie even more. Two of my favorite actors was hard to pass up! I got a little lost when trying to connect the dots, but, in general, I liked the movie and acting.

Something's Missing

Overall, it was ok. I went away with thinking that something was missing - either there were problems with the script or with the editing. The movie could have been great with better editing. In terms of the acting, Mark Wahlberg was good, Catherine Zeta-Jones was great although I would have liked her have a larger role - because she's so good. Russell Crowe's performance was lacking and the tan was both inexplicable and distracting. Alona Tal deserves recognition for a great performance as Katy Bradshaw opposite Mark Wahlberg's Billy Taggart. Jeffrey Wright, Kyle Chandler and Barry Pepper all seemed to be miscast in their roles. The ending did seem to set things up for a sequel of some sort. Maybe they can explain all of the missing details in the sequel - where I'd like to see the chemistry between Billy Taggart and Katy Bradshaw play out.

Worth the money

It had just the right amount of action and suspense. It lacked development in some critical areas, but it probably would have made the movie too long and drawn out. i simply the male actors held their own by playing characters who were believable and not too over the top with their personas. Catherine Zeta-Jones was classy but witty.
