I am a big fan of Colin Farrell but as of late he has been doing many remake movies that didn't do great. This movie is a huge step up!! This movie had no real flaws, it was extremely entertaining!! This is a must go!!

I had no idea what to expect from this film but I am pleased with the outcome. This film is awkward. . yes perfect awkwardness. There are moments when it's silent and the characters are uncomfortable and you can feel it and understand it and even think, "I'd be like that too in that situation."
Colin is great, he acts so much with is facial expressions and you can literally watch him and know what he is feeling and understand it. He shifts and acts with his body language so perfectly in this film. In one scene he is tough and the next he is soft and all is done with his physical languages. I love it. This film has great action scenes and as loud as they are, they have a quiet beauty to them, they are useful action scenes, not js random action but action that belongs in the frame.
The connections between the characters are well played and very well defined. By the end of this movie you learn who Colin is along with him. He doesn't get himself until her realizes what needs to be done

I really liked this first American effort of the original swedish director of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It is very confusing at the beginning and you don't really figure out what is going on till about an hour into the movie, but oh the payoff is so worth it. It is not an academy award winning film, but it is great for one of those rainy day movies and should be seen on a big screen.

Probably the worst movie I've seen in a long time.....terrible dialogue and plot. Collin Farrell is horribly bad....he has long awkward stares throughout the movie, and makes me not want to see one of his movies ever again. Save your money, do not go see this movie in the theater.

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!
