Claysaba Excellent, Without a doubt!!
Kien Navarro Exactly the movie you think it is, but not the movie you want it to be.
Sarita Rafferty There are moments that feel comical, some horrific, and some downright inspiring but the tonal shifts hardly matter as the end results come to a film that's perfect for this time.
Staci Frederick Blistering performances.
iefkebijker Great storyline if it is well acted, which this one isn't. Originally a Belgian movie, later better remade in the Netherlands (where I'm from). I absolutely love the Dutch film, I really hate this one.
MarwanMohsen91 Underrated Good Movie with a great choise of actors, every one of them did his part perfectly. the Plot is good with very thrilling moments and that what makes me thought of its very underrated
a_chinn If Billy Wilder's "The Apartment" had been a murder mystery, this would be it. A group of married men share a secret love nest for their extramarital trysts. The married men include Karl Urban, James Marsden, Eric Stonestreet, and two others. Their arrangement seems to be working just fine until they discover a dead woman in the loft and the group must then figure out which one of them is a murderer. It's not a bad set-up, but the film is all clichés and has so many twists and turns that the story goes well beyond stretching credulity. The film was written by Wesley Strick, who has a couple good films under his belt with the "Cape Fear" remake and "Final Analysis," although I believe those films were good based upon the strength of their directors, Martin Scorsese and Phil Joanou respectively. The film is actually a remake of a film out of Belgium and this film's director, Erik Van Looy, directed both. Overall, the film is slickly made, has a solid cast, but falls apart as a result of the weak script.
EBJ # No Spoilers!Directed by Eric Van LooyStarring Karl Urban, Wentworth Miller and James MarsdenOverall: This movie is really bad and I definitely don't recommend you see it. Two semi-competent performances and the little amount of will to live I had left in me kept this movie from being a 1/10. It is just plain terrible and I beg of you not to see it. It's not so bad it's good; it's so bad it's awful.# Possible Spoilers!Good:1. Wentworth Miller does decent as Luc Seynaeve2. Karl Urban was okay as Vincent.3. I was reasonably interested in the movie throughout.Bad:1. All other actors were appalling2. Two grand, game changing twists were not needed. One was fine.3. Speaking of the twist, I guessed the final outcome within maybe 10 minutes of the film starting.4. Horrific cinematography.5. Even the minuscule effects used were awful.3/10
