portrayal of how to treat the mentally ill

Movie kept me on the edge of my seat, but I'm disappointed in the ending. Main character was obviously mentally ill, and -- spoiler alert -- he is locked in an underground shelter to die a slow tortorous death. Yes, I understand this person had tortured and killed his victims, but would a person do this if they were mentally healthy? No. Is mental illness something someone chooses? No. It is a brain disorder. There are genetic components and usually something in their environment (like the death of sibling) that triggers it. If someone had a brain tumor that made them behave like this killer, we would not think it's OK to torture and kill him, but it's still considered acceptable and even desirable to do it to the mentally ill. I think future generations will be aghast when they look at movies like this for their treatment of people with brain disoders and how they manipulate audiences to want them tortured and killed.

This movie was really good. Full of suspense and action. Halle Berry was at her best with lots of emotion. Not one sleepy moment during the whole movie in fact was on the edge of my seat the whole time. You gotta see this one.

The excellent plot, compelling performances by all the actors and the fast pace of the movie all contributed to making this a very good, non-stop thriller. Definitely worth seeing!

This is the movie for you if you like to sit on the edge of your seat for 90 minutes. Very suspenseful, fast paced and good acting with a little twist in the end...
