i wanted to ike this movie. in fact, i wanted to love this movie. this type of story is usually my favorite: psychological drama/action thriller... but the storyline was lame and predictable. there were no real surprises or twists in the plot, and i felt that while i always love cate blanchette, and the characters she plays, this one was one dimentional, cartoonish, even... there was no explanation given for the reason the project was terminated in the first place, and several other details i wish not to reveal in case someone reading this has not already seen the movie.
i will probably see it again on dvd, to see if there was something i missed that would make the experience richer and more multidimensional next time. i would rate this film C+ for lack of creativity and predictability. A+ for casting and cinematography. this is smilla's sense of snow meets bourne identity meets run lola run...
