    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    This crackpot thriller from the usually competent Jim Sheridan leaves only one mystery unsolved: what on earth was he thinking?

    Los Angeles Times

    With its telegraphed twists and clunky pacing, the film would be unbearable were it not for the fine trio of Craig, Weisz and Naomi Watts, all more or less slumming.

    Impressive as the combination may seem on paper, having Sheridan direct this sort of genre fare reps a clear miscasting of helmer and subject, as he displays no particular feel for...

  • Like two films in one.

    Well, I thought the films premise kind of went off the rails at the half way mark but some other people seemed to think it was really a very good film. I think it had the potential for greatness but it was not realized maybe so goodly. Very similar to a mind bogglingly rotten film called Shutter Island that came out a few years back where an FBI agents life is apparently all a thing that he conjured up by way of a mental illness. Cute. It made for a poor film watching experience. Not quite as lurching as Shutter Island but the plot is in a very similar vein and maybe works on some levels but overall comes off sounding like someone trying to sing out of nevermind. Fans of Daniel Craig will think this is a great film even if it doesn't really work-in the sense that a man with the kind of mental problems he is supposed to have probably can't pass the screening process of working for a large corporation-even if the plot "all works out in the They do check to see of people actually have work histories in big company positions-but not according to this film. I guess ya gotta love horror movies to get me a grinch if ya wanna.moreless
