The professional critics who likened this to Hitchcock's psychological thrillers were obviously on crack. It has a great cast, and the story is good, but the movie suffers from a general lack of tension. I figured out quite early what was really going on, and from there on, and ... ho, hum. There was no sense of menace or danger or even empathy as Jude Law slipped into obsession and watched his life escaping from him.
This movie had great potential and could have been so much more than it was.

This is a must see movie with an unexpected twist. I don't usually give reviews on movies, but this one was worth doing so. If you're only into hard-charging action movies with lots of violence and could care less about the story-line, then this movie is not for you. However, if you enjoy a good story then you must see this movie.

Very rarely are there movies where the audience is wondering what's going on. This movie has plenty of twists. All these twists also expose the relationship between the doctors and pharmaceutical companies. Thought provoking and exciting.

I was a bit skeptical about this movie -- BH really wanted to see this for some of the "dreamy" actors -- but it was way more than pretty faces. What I thought was going to be a "ho hum" movie caught me off-guard with the multiple plot twists and the great story line.
This script attracted four top-notch actors for the lead roles. Rooney Mara (recently "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo") shows that her her nomination for an Academy Award for TGWTDT was no fluke. Zeta-Jones is, of course, predictably fantastic. Jude Law gives a performance that may well earn him another Academy Award nomination.
This is one not to miss.
