Beware ! This film doesn't play fair with the audience ...........
26 December 2013 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

First of all, Graham Greene, a terrific actor, is totally wasted in this movie. His part is nothing more that someone creeping around in the dark, and could have been played by any no name. This is the type of film that actually makes the audience feel foolish for being lead along a path to nowhere. The kids appear smarter than the cops, the two prime murder suspects have no motive for the killing, and then out of nowhere everything we are lead to believe is turned upside down, just so the script can appear to be clever. I absolutely hated this movie for all of the above reasons, and it should definitely be avoided, unless you want to spend 95 minutes being lead down the same ridiculous path. - MERK
