My Thoughts
Before I watched this movie, I saw bits and pieces of the trailer and I actually thought it was more of Action than what it really is. For me, it was a little eerie in the beginning, but later on when things started to make sense I was stuck in the movie. As soon as a death case took place, I started thinking who could the killer be? I was very sure the guy that was released from jail is not the killer because that is what the director would want us to think. However it was a little draggy at some parts, for instance, some scenes I think they pause a little too long which got me annoyed. It's like they show the guy smoking and thinking, but we can't hear his thoughts. 

Well I don't want to say much here because I might spoil the movie, but all I can say is that the ending is pretty unpredictable, and the director has succeed in playing mind tricks with the audience. Though genre is crime, thriller, and action, but in my opinion there was also a little of romance/drama. Do catch it if you can because I personally enjoyed this movie.

*PS. Not much action scenes, and thank you Nuffnang.

My liking: 3.5/5
