Source Material: Original Thriller by David Loughery and Howard Korder
Action: Brilliant: The movie keeps your attention. It not a high energy, lost of explosions type of attention but a “what’s going to happen next” type of attention.
Acting and Dialogue: Brilliant: Samuel L. Jackson and Patrick Wilson both bring there A-game but there is some faults aka Kerry Washington. She was good but not as good as Samuel L. Jackson and Patrick Wilson.
Cinematography: Common: The cinematography was nothing spectacular.
Direction: Brilliant: It seemed to be put together well and the pace wasn’t bad.
Sound: Common: Sound track was decent, every day sounds to the LA neighborhood.
Special and Visual FX: Common: This movie also wasn’t an FX driven film.
Overall: B, I recommend it.
