      saw it today. it was a bit complicated, but the clues were there throughout the movie. I think I figured out what was happening about 30 minutes in.

      it was a bit like sixth sense in terms of plot twists.

      it was an interesting concept. it was a decent enough movie in my opinion, not a great movie, but not a bad one either.

      The Florida Keys location looked a lot like Mauritius.

      Very disappointed in this film, it had the makings for a great suspense story set in a beautiful location with great actors, but it went all weird and ended up being nothing like it set out to be. Had the story carried on as it started it could have been wonderful.

      Sadly, this movie can't be saved by Matthew, Jason or Anne.
      You can't help but think, you have seen this before (trying not to give too much away)
      I didn't really have high hopes but thought come on, it would at least be better than this.

      You have to wonder sometimes what they actually do in editing rooms and the feedback they get from small previews.

      Give it a 5/10 (that's because of the beautiful location)
      :D

      Huh, aint it strange that Peppermint got the same score and yet I'm picking that to watch over this.

      I think with a cast of this strength and the film not being "great" is less of a choice than the same meh of a film that isn't trying to be something it's not.

      Probably the missed opportunity of the century. Could easily have been a brilliant film, all the ingredients were there. A bit like Downsizing, started off really well and then simply nose dived.
