(de) wrote: Good movie. It feels like a Canadian version of Ocean's 11, but it's still funny, entertaining, and brings great performances from its cast, especially Russell, Baruchel, and Jones.

(ca) wrote: A bit slow but keeps you hooked. It's a great movie!
(it) wrote: Hmm... Great cast. Shame about the plot-line. I found what to be going on pretty obvious, and then I realised who the killer was going to end up being although I did make a couple of mistakes first. I dunno... Watch The Bone Collector or Kiss the Girls or something!
(nl) wrote: A simple story, but told well, with good writing, and even better line delivery from Kevin Spacey and Danny DeVito. I appreciated the film's take on belief systems, featuring some pretty insightful commentary, though I didn't agree with all of it. Being based on a play, the film did feel rather confined, but ultimately it's a dialogue-driven narrative anyway. 3.5/5 Stars

There are not a whole lotta movies I'd ever say that about, boy. In fact, there are way more movies where I'd more likely say I'm sorry I actually saw that one before I died. Wasted time, you know? You know that sport? I think it's called something like "urban jumping" or "urban freestyle" or maybe even "urban freestyle jumping"? The stuntmen in the newest James Bond movie do a great job of it. Climbing all over the landscape, sliding down stairs, jumping through windows. Exciting stuff. If I weren't 107, I'd give that sport a try. Anyway, I just want to say that Rogers and Astaire would have made great urban jumpers. They can dance on, over, around, and through anything. As I've said before, for me there is no greater dancing duo in the history of film, and I don't think they'll ever be topped. So glad I finally did see this. And I'm still sorry that Jack Carson never had a greater acting career. He should have been given more chances to play leading roles, as opposed to functioning merely as a character actor. Carson is a first-class act.
