ridiculous.
Verified purchase
writers writers writers... where are they? Or who in the world messed this one up so badly?

2/3 of the way through it goes off the cliff to absurd. Forget I told you and if you give this one a try, I wonder if you also lose all desire to see the ending. It takes a left hand turn that is so preposterous, I can't finish the move.Who's idea was this?

Spoiler alert.

Micael Keaton plays another silly role that is beyond preposterous and lacks all realm of authenticity. First character "almost cares"...then a big gap in the story after "thrilling chase" and he switches places places, with a psychopath, becomes empathetic rather than the murderer we just experienced...What???? then decides to "make a difference", listen to his prey; after killing two people ALREADY, and to become a person who to "gives a sh*t" and make himself a "better person" because a cat got killed???? What???

"a story laced humanistic elements designed to draw in an audience" loosely sketched in the most nonsensical manner, alongside "a plot that has been done a thousand times" then superficially presented to the viewer with such absurd logic so that no one would ever believe any of it.... what happened to foundation? What happened to character development? What happened to drama???? Why make this movie????......

Great Thrill Ride
Verified purchase
This was an exciting thriller that had a few twists. I always enjoy Michael Keaton and this film was another vehicle that showcased his incredible talent. I am dating myself, but this one reminded me of "Wait Until Dark". The violence seemed over the top, but I understand the reasons why it was deemed necessary. Overall, this was a heart pounding ride.

very unusual premise
Verified purchase
I like 16:9 and I like 5.1 surroundsound. I like the violence. I like the shooting; that was unusually important. Greed is hazardous to his health. I am getting quite confident in the recommendations list.

Total rip off
Verified purchase
this move is a rip off of "wait until Dark" and a very poor try at it, acting was not so good and it was very slow and could not wait till this crap ended. can I sue amazon for the 2 years of my black Irish life lost.

Really interesting.

Not sure I would necessarily consider it a thriller. Some action with an interesting plot.

They've never done a movie like this before and I can most guarantee there won't ...

Anybody that says this movie was less than mediocre is crazy. I don't know what people expect of movies these days after millions have been made and many, MANY are redundant. They've never done a movie like this before and I can most guarantee there won't be a Blindsided 2, 3 or 4 like everything else out there. I thought it was very well written, good story line, great acting and suspenseful. A gripping thriller and I enjoyed it very much. I ordered it months ago when it was still only available oversea's and called "Penthouse North" - I couldn't watch it on my DVD player, only on my laptop and remember watching it while waiting for a severely delayed flight for a business trip. I couldn't wait to see if it would become available on regular DVD and was pleased when it did. This is a must see for every movie fan who enjoy suspense/thriller movies. You won't be disappointed!
