Order of Chaos Reviews
''In a world of no absolutes, right and wrong is just a matter of perspective. ''
Its movies like this that knowing the end does not harm yr imagination.
The acting and dialog was lacking though; I was left wanting more out of them and they just didn't deliver. The chemistry was all wrong, and the filming took away from what could have been salvaged of the plot.
It's rated as a thriller, but there was nothing really thrilling about it.
the thing that caught my attention the most was nothing to do with the story; things scribbled on the walls such as '911 was an inside job'; when Rick said: 'It's the end of the world- do what you want!'; and the way certain things were filmed. that is what kept my attention, and I thought that maybe there's something deeper than the actual movie here; an underlying message. I think I was mistaken. So ... I didn't really learn anything new, and didn't come away with anything mind-boggling :D
[i've looked everywhere for the soundtrack but I can't find it (which is saying a lot!) ... so if someone comes across this and knows where to find a link to it; i'd be grateful.]
Terrible acting, editing, writing, and let's not forget the jarring soundtrack.
Avoid this pretentious piece of crap at all coat!
A smart dramatic thriller that allows it's characters to come to life nicely while remaining believable to its set up. Not everything works perfectly, but I really liked the way this picture took its time and refused to fall into many of the typical suspense traps.
John, played by Rhys Coiro, is a successful lawyer at a respected Los Angeles law firm. He needs more backbone, but overall he is good at his job. Then one day Rich, a young hotshot lawyer is hired at the firm. He also has moved into the same apartment building as John. They become uneasy friends as Rich begins leading John down a dangerous path that jeopardizes his job and his relationship with his girlfriend.
Rhys Coiro and Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Rich, are really what sets this thriller apart. Their performances are excellent. Vincent Vieluf, who starred in films like "Rat Race" and "An American Werewolf in London" makes an impressive writing and directorial debut.
The beginning of the movie made somewhat more sense than the rest of it, but it was a bit jerky. Sure, that was the style that was maintained thorough the entire film, and while it was kind of fascinating, it also made the movie confusing - which wasn't good at all.
I watched this movie to see Milo Ventimiglia, I admit, and in that respect I don't regret watching the film at all. Milo as Rick was strong, arrogant, smart(ass), and fantastic to look at.
Rhys Coiro as John, on the other hand, was shaky, and totally off his rocker most of the time. His character was supposed to be messed up, I get that, but in the end it just didn't work out that well.
Not the worst movie I've seen, and there were some good moments in the fast-paced plot, but all in all it was a bit too jerky and insane for my tastes.
I liked the music of the movie, though. Might buy the soundtrack.
