This is a good film and a testament to why independent movies can be better than big Hollywood productions. The film itself contains nothing of note; no big explosions, no chase scenes, no fighting, cursing, or even killing (which is what the plot revolves around). It has a very quiet yet eerie atmosphere about it which I found to be intriguing. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to try something "different" but beware if you're not patient as most of the movie carries trivial dialogue; it is more about the experiences and emotions of the girl than it is about carrying out her 'mission'.

Overall, decent film that I would watch again. 3/5

This movie starts out with a bang, not in the exlosive department, but more in the potential department. But then it ends with such a whimper that it surely doesn't deserve the three or four star ratings that so many people have given it.

This movie isn't "brave," or any of the other words that most likely critics tossed out after screening. Rather, it is a "coward" as it doesn't really take the necessary risks needed to make it eventually interesting. There is one scene where a guy, through obvious social engineering, is trying to take advantage of the female lead -- she is one of the highlights of the film -- and I have to admit, at that point I said out loud, "Now THIS would be the time that I want you to press that button. Do it. DO IT!" (If you've seen this film, admit it; you were thinking the same thing, and for good reason.)

Now, I will tell you how this movie should have ended, if it wanted to make a point. Now, to tell you how it should have ended also is to some degree a SPOILER, as you will then know something about the fim, so if you haven't seen the film, jump to the last paragraph: She should have accidently set the bomb off somewhere, probably in one of the restroom scenes, where she is the only one injured or killed. Then, she would have died alone. This would have had far more impact.

This movie is a pass. In reality, for me, it bombed. And in a really bad way.
