    Your Opinions and Comments

    8 / 10
    A rather good thriller that could`ve been a lot better hadn`t it had several plot holes. Still, it managed to keep me awake throughout.
    The video transfer is good. There are a lot of dark scenes in the movie and all are rendered nicely without any grain or compression signs.
    The DTS and DD 5.1 soundtrack are good too. The surrounds are used quite frequently and do a good job. The subwoofer is particularly active and is better defined in the DTS track.
    The menus are animated with sound.
    The extras include 2 commentaries by the director and most of the cast, a behind the scenes look, 2 storyboards and 3 deleted scenes.
    Bottom line - a nice thriller, despite some annoying plot holes.
