Apparently, this movie never received much love but I thought that De Niro was just amazing here. On top of that, there was a really interesting concept but, instead of properly developing this idea, they went for the usual annoying gimmicks and you basically ended up with another average US thriller.¬†So indeed, it is in fact a rather standard thriller and the whole thing was really predictable¬† but De Niro gave such an intense performance, he just pushed the whole thing to the next level all by himself, at least, tha” read more
