I totally agree with your assessment of this gripping thriller. I don't usually watch violent movies but this one was different. I couldn't help but identify with Erica. I had a problem with one of the killings..the one that involved the crowbar. I found it difficult to believe that Erica could stalk the man she ended up killing with the crowbar. Other than that, the movie was totally engrossing and I thought the relationship between Erica and the detective was believable. While reading other reviews of this movie, I was surprised that some found it boring. I thought the majority would feel the same way I felt about it. I'm wondering what our attitude towards this movie says about us? Can a person condone the actions of Erica and still be considered one of the 'good guys'? I like a movie that makes me ask questions like this. I wish there were a lot more movies made like this one which causes the viewer to question his or her beliefs about what is right and what is wrong.
