Really good movie, highly underrated

This is a great movie, and compared to the games, very subtle. There is quite a lot of slitting necks though, in one seen the main character says f**k and in the beginning he tries a dangerous stunt and very quietly says s**t. You also see the boys mom in a very small blood puddle.
