Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: The film's descent into generic silliness feels more painful than it should for a late-January thriller.
- Andrew Lapin, NPR, Thursday, January 26, 2012
Rotten: It sure is about a man on a ledge.
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Thursday, January 26, 2012
Fresh: This embraces its own lunacy readily enough, never aiming for anything more than the disposable thrills it delivers thick and fast.
- Anna Smith, Time Out, Tuesday, January 31, 2012
"I really liked this. I wasn't blown away with it, but it was close to being great. I enjoyed the story. I thought the way they planned it all was very smart. I was even surprised by the ending when their in the bar. I didn't catch on to who the bartender would end up being. I love a good crime thriller and this one delivers. I thought Worthington and Bell were really good in this. I wish Burns would have been used a little bit more. Kyra had a small part too, but it fitted. I love Ed Harris too. The movie has a wide range of good actors in the movie. I think without them the film would have failed. They story unfolds as it goes and I never felt lost. I guess your suppose to have an aha moment, but unfortunately some of the suspense was guessed pretty easily. But still this was one of the better thrillers I have seen lately. I would definitely see this again."
