A good movie and very entertaining

One of Mark Wahlberg's good performances and a standard Markie-Mark tough guy showing. Nothing new here: A twisting and turning drama wrapped around a good script, with excellent actors. Good cinematography. Medium action. Overall entertaining, but not cerebral at all.

Intelligent Plot, Well Executed, More Editing Was Required.

Overall, this is a fine film populated with A-list talent. They all live up to their reps and deliver fine performances here. Still, they can only do what's on the page and it's obvious this play, and the consequential film, both required more editing. In a striking attempt to avoid all plot holes, the play becomes misdirected and convoluted. To make matters worse, the dialog is muddled and confused in places. Beyond these things, all-in-all, it's worth the price of a ticket. Take along your patience though, you'll need it for the payoff.

Entertaining but not great

Movie was ok, pretty good i guess. Wahlberg is always good as a tough guy. I give it a 7.5 out of 10. However, I do have two questions. Why was Russel Crowe so tan he looked orange? And why does Barry Pepper look so old? Seriously the man is 42 but looks like he's going on 55.

This film has such a twisted, suspenceful plot. I really enjoyed it and recommend to those who like intrigue,suspence, drama and the line up of actors.

Russell Crowe from Brooklyn I think not!

So the story was very thin. It did not keep you guessing, it barely kept you interested. There just isn't enough movie here. And I just couldn't get over Russell Crowe's horrible Brooklyn accent. Skip the box office and wait for redbox on this one.
