    Anyone seen this? Worth getting? Not had good reviews. Looks like it might be being hyped as 'unrated', to cover the fact that it's a poor film, but of course, I could be wrong. :rolleyes:

    Slightly better than average thriller, but with the added incentive of having AJ in it.

    There is a steamy little love scene in there with AJ "baps out" but it's not worth the purchase of the disc.

    Is The R2 "Unrated Directors Cut" the same as the R1?

    This is a very average predictable thriller...

    AJs baps are always worth feasting on though :devil:

    I liked the movie quite a bit. It reminded me, somewhat (vaguely) of Seven, but no where as good.

    As for the ending - who said it was predictable ??? I think not. Well maybe the final outcome may have been predictable from the very very beginning, but come on now, surely you didn't know how the ending was to come about.

    Most films, you could say the good guy lives at the end and the bad person dies or the bad person gets put away - BIG DEAL !. It's how they lead up to it and twists and turns along the way !!

    Seven, Man On Fire, Back To The Future was ultimately predictable, but were GREAT films. and many more...

    Hi

    Absolutely we all knew who did it fairly early on but did not expect it to be wrapped up like that (pretty shocking !!)

    Anyway I found it to be a pretty good film with a couple of scenes where you had better hold onto your popcorn
