good for kids who are intrested in thriller

I though it was very creative and although I would usually suggest thriller for at least 17-19+ I think if a teen is interested in the genre it is pretty good! A bit to much violence but more or less fine

HORRIBLE.... Full disclosure...I watched about 15 mins and walked. also spoilers

First the good. Had some of the feel of the series. Maggie Q held the same quiet awe that the week to week actors did in the original. Course, I could just watch Maggie Q breathe and it would be enough! you really felt immersed in party, and also the torture scene...that is why I left....HORRIBLE! no need for it! Now reading the spoilers...the twists seem stupid, random and just 'cause they can. Also Michael Peña doesn't have 1/10th the presence of Ricardo Montalbán did. Not the actor's fault...just poorly cast. I would like the money and time that I spent on this rental back.

This title has:

Too much violence
