Went with no expectations and was pleasantly surprised

This was a really good movie. Well written, shot, directed and acted. I know these seem like dry terms to describe a movie but on the surface one might say that elements of the story are somewhat cliche but they are handled well so the feeling that it's cliche is avoided. Certain lines, said by any other actors, wouldn't play but with this cast, they are compelling. The story always kept me guessing and even when I'd already figured things out, I was still entertained way beyond my expectations. Not a wrong move in it. I really really recommend this movie. It wasn't well attended which is a shame. I don't know if it was competing with some strong opening nights for other movies but it deserves not to be overlooked.

Good story, slow moments

Had some slow dark moments with soft speaking and dark scenery...... welll whenever that happens in a movie zzzzZZZZZZ! woops am I asleep?? LOL! but it was a good story line once I woke up and followed along with what it was all about. I enjoyed it, my husband thought it could have used more action throughout instead of just the beginning and end. NOT for children!

Grudging Thumbs Up

I would have enjoyed this movie a lot more if Dominic Cooper and Colin Farrell had switched roles. Ever since seeing THE DEVIL'S DOUBLE I've been a huge fan of Coopers and am glad to see he's starting to get parts in movies that show up at my Cineplex. I was also very surprised and pleased to see Armand Assante had a small part in this film. However, the one thing I hated about this film was the difficulty in understanding the dialogue! Perhaps the Marlon Brando mumbling style of acting has returned, but whatever the reason, it's especially hard to follow what's going on in a movie like this one. But, all in all, I'd still give it a marginal thumbs up.

Love the actors. Colin Farrell needs to be in more things so this would not be such a disappointment. Slooooooow moving, until the end. Wait for video.
