    Thanks for the review Matt :smashin:

    I think I'll give this one a rent before I decide to buy as allthough I'm a Ridley fan and very much enjoy a quirkier style of movie, I just find it hard to sit down and watch a film with Nicholas Cage as the lead since I seen Con Air...

    My face looks like I just bit into a lemon every time I think of the imortal line "Put the bunny back in the box" :zonked:

    Regards,
    Iain.

    Ian,
    I think you will enjoy this one, it plods along nicely and then does your knee caps in the last third. A really unconventional thriller with comedy thrown in the mix.

    Hmmm... You reviewers drive a hard bargain :D

    I'll take a browse round the trades to see if I can get myself a good deal, saying that, since I don't think it did that well at the box office I'll most likely be able to pick it up new quite cheap in a couple of months anyway...

    Thanks again for the good review...

    Regards,
    Iain.

    £9.99 delivered at Blackstar.co.uk

    Great deal for a great film :smashin:

    Although the film is a "12", the DVD is a "15" because of the extras. Ridley Scott likes to use the f-word a lot :D

    I watched it on a flight last summer - I thought it was back to classic Cage, mean, moody and not someone to introduce to your mother :)

    Well I rented and watched this tonight and I have to say I really enjoyed it...

    Turlough, I agree, back to classic Cage, IMO he turned out a great performance, I thought he might have over-played the sickness his character had but he pulled it off very well.

    This will be joining my collection soon :smoke:

    Regards,
    Iain.
