in the 3 Stooges episode , Birdbrain, the mad scientist wants to place Curiles brain into a gorilla, and taps him on the head with a mallet to test his 'resonance'. this movie did not resonate with me, even tho it features being hit over the head. This movie is the non sequitur sequel to Birdbrain and no hit over the head can jar us out of a stupor. The only good acting was by the 3 henchmen*stooges?) to Vincent Cassel's Franck.Danny Boyle's next movie is an another Irvine Welsh adaptation, Porno,. This movie is a stalking horse for the his next foray into cine madness.

Quite a disappointment, far-fetched exaggeration regarding the "powers" of hypnosis; ridiculous escape scene; useless violence; and the fastest buzz job you'll ever see.

I saw the previews for this movie & happened to be able to catch while on vacation. It is definitely a great movie with twists & turns, great ending. I loved it & would highly recommend it.

A movie for people with a brain! Danny Boyle is a genius.

I expected a movie about hypnotism, and I was surprised by just how hypnotized I was by this film. I must admit that if a movie bores me, I will fall asleep. This film, however, kept me riveted until the very end. What a wholly enjoyable film. It does suffer from being drawn out and verbose in certain instances, but as a whole, the movie is one of the freshest experiences I have had. If you need one reason to see this movie, here it is: Rosario Dawson. That is all.
