(it) wrote: Good story, solid actor great dynamic between characters. Definitely worth a watch
(kr) wrote: Dared but nontheless very convincing story set in the social bottom of UK.
(ru) wrote: The film had some powerful messages and intense scenes. I understood the message of the film especially with regard to the saying out of the frying pan and into the fire. I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews. People either didn't see the message the film was showing or they didn't like how there was a lot of killing and violence. Great film.
(kr) wrote: Feels a lot like the "Bourne" series, but on a far smaller budget. Rather than coming across as a thriller, this movie grows boring quickly. Often leaves you wondering what is happening and why. Although this film eventually answers some of the questions it evokes, it's much too little much too late. All in all, hard to sit through.

(it) wrote: I don't know why critics praise this movie. I found it to be bland, mediocre, and poorly directed. I did used to like this film, but now I see how predictable it is and how sappy it is at times. In my opinion, Lindsay Lohan is a poor actress and she failed to be convincing as her own character and as Jamie Lee Curtis's. She came off as nothing but a selfish teenager in the first half and I couldn't find any reason to care about her. A lot of the drama did not hit in the first half of the movie and it was just too melodramatic. Besides that most of the jokes were not memorable nor were they funny and I felt the script could have had some work. The original Freaky Friday I thought was just alright and not that great, but here things seemed to be more mediocre this time around. Flaws aside, the one good aspect of the movie was Jamie Lee Curtis. I thought she gave a good performance and she had fun playing her own character and Lindsay Lohan's, because when the film would turn back to Lindsay Lohan, I was less interested and less engaged about what was going on. I also thought the movie was edited well and the final 15 minutes added a decent shred of humanity in its main characters.

(it) wrote: Very good film and story but a little slow to start. Continued with a calm but powerful feeling to it.
