Clint Says: Wait until after opening weekend, but see this in theaters
This film is almost a throwback to the old days of Hollywood where the movie depended a lot more on dialogue than visuals and effects.
This is a straight murder mystery movie. There is very little action and a whole lot of interrogation. If you like puzzles, you'll love this movie. If you are thinking this is going to be a James Bond-style period piece, you'll be sorely disappointed.
The ensemble cast is star-studded and amazing. The acting makes this film watchable. Without the incredible acting this could have easily been a two-hour long, excruciatingly boring train wreck. And while it isn't fast-paced and action-packed, it is still filled with suspense and intrigue. It will keep you engaged and guessing the whole time.
It's been a very long time since we've had a true mystery movie hit theaters. If that is your genre of choice, go enjoy every minute of this mind-twisting ride.
