I was looking for a thriller to jolt me out of my melancholy mood. This movie made me even more depressed because it it is a dark, slow movie. I didn't care much about the characters, nor about the twist at the end, which was interesting, but -- yawn. I would wait until you could stream it at home. Worth a rental, but not going out for.

Terrible movie. Weak. Catherine Zeta's character unbelievable. Lead female,mumbled through you the entire move. Waste of Jude Law's talent. Sound in the movies was terrible and every realistic outside noise was brought in for realism. I wanted to shut the window so I could hear.

Horrible Movie

I haven't actually left before a movie has ended in a very long time. I have only walked out of one other movie. I walked out of this movie. The movie is slow. The plot sucks. The twist is pretty predictable. Don't go!

Side Effects

I actually had some negative side effects from wasting my money and time on this terrible movie. The trailer made this movie look more like a psychological horror pic but instead we got a typical murder mystery which was badly acted (except for Rooney Mara, who was excellent) and boring. You can see the plot lines a mile away through thick fog. The so called twists weren't very twisty but were predictable. The first half of this movie was like watching a documentary on how bad the pharmaceutical industry is and it is pretty bad so good for the producers to bring some light on the criminals in that industry. The second half was the predictable part with no real surprises. When my popcorn was gone, I should have left. One bright spot to note. Rooney Mara's performance was so good, it almost made seeing this horrible movie worthwhile.
