Sayles cheats the viewer with an ending that might have looked enigmatic on another film, but looks like a cop-out on this one.

It delivers its name's sake. If limbo is your idea of fun -- you'll have a riot.

Go for the early pleasures of John Sayles' latest, but be prepared for a detour to another, far less engaging movie.

The ambiguity of its ending may be frustrating, but your reaction and subsequent conclusion reveal more about you than about the characters in the film.
