I can't believe I actually sat through the whole thing.
I rented this movie after reading a ton of good things about it. I went in expecting "plot twists" and "really good acting." I was duped. I really should have turned it off after the first 5 minutes, because that's exactly, including the credits, how long it took me to figure the whole movie out. I'd like to think I'm NOT smarter than most movie watchers, but when I read about people saying this movie had great "plot twits," I can't help thinking that I might be. The whole thing was so painfully obvious. This is not a good thriller. And as for the acting... I really loved Thora Birch's performance in "American Beauty." It was nothing short of genius. However, she was terrible in this, and honestly, I was really disappointed. Her "English" accent was so bad it was distracting. She even dropped it altogether in some scenes. If the budget on this movie was so low that they couldn't pay for an accent coach, the least they could've done was make her character American to save everyone the shame. I really thought this movie was pure trash.
