As far as thrillers go, this one is pretty good. The plot is interesting, the acting is good, and it is fast-paced. It's the kind of film that will have you holding your breath and gripping the armrests a little too tight.
The unfortunate side of this film are all of the crime thriller tropes. Like, no one in authority believes the hero and everyone loves the bad guy. Like, the bad guy keeps on coming back. And more. Tropes aside, this is a fun, intense, and exciting movie that will get your heart beating faster.
It doesn't tie up all of the loose ends at the end which will drive some of you crazy, but the main story line plays through well from start to finish.
It's not a who-dun-it style film. You know the bad guy within the first 10 minutes of the movie, but it still takes a long time for us to find out who he really is. It would have been nice to have a little more character development, but we are able to piece things together by the end.
If you like crime thrillers this is a movie worth seeing.
