If you have a fascination for Stephen King and the like - then this is the one for you. It mimics too many other trite plots to have any outstanding merits except for a few twists and turns. Save your money and go to Dairy Queen instead - you'll fell better in the morning
A lot of twist and turns with a few surprises to boot plus plenty of action in between with top notch writing and direction, highly recommend.
The cast features two top notch performers in Ben Affleck and Charlize Theron. The rest of the actors are OK, but are more-or-less afterthoughts to this standout tandem. Affleck is an emerging star who possesses a commanding screen presence normally only afforded by older, more distinguished actors such as Sean Connery & Ed Harris. Theron proves to be his theatrical equal as she performs with an acting dynamic and erotic allure not seen since Marlene Dietrich.
If you want a film that will stand up to extensive cinematic scrutiny, then this film is probably not for you. However, if you want a movie that you can sit back, relax & enjoy, then you can't do much better. Just seeing Affleck & Theron on-screen at the same time is worth the price of the DVD. That it takes place in my home state of Michigan is also an added plus. 8-)

Anyway, I really enjoyed this film & don't know why everyone seems to be so down on it. It's a good story with a great twist at the end & the lead actors are all good.
Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron & Gary Senise all put in good performances & also too is James Frain, who's becoming one of my favourite actors, as he was great in "The Tudors" asThomas Cromwell & also as Villefort in "The Count Of Monte Christo" & he's good in this film too.
So, ignore all the bad reviews of the film & give it a go, it's actually quite good! :)
Good film that I have seen before
