Critic Review - Guardian [UK]

It's a thriller in which the twists become so absurd that it becomes a kind of caper, but without the humour.

This film relies heavily on suspense as a plot development device and as a result it becomes almost ridiculous as it unfolds; friends become enemy's and enemy's become friends etc etc etc, in essence it's wholly unoriginal. This being said, it's relatively watchable even in all of its bland Hollywood glory. You will watch and you will forget, and in a way its a shame because I personally have been enjoying Wahlgergs triumphant return to big screen.

Fair critique Peter and it deserves a thumbs down. I attempted watching it twice and fell asleep both times. The 'story' didn't hold water, Whalberg literally sleep-walked through it. And it was shot too damn dark!!! And Walhberg was a producer???
