This moving is everything wrong with our society, not sure the message they intended to pass; you see your dead boss, instead of calling help/ police immediately you begin to go through his things, you are given an extreme raise, you didn't call immediately to clarify if it was a mistake, you see a dead man with diamonds, you dialogue first then have his body thrown into gabbage after, you man got shot, you kneel crying instead of calling for help, then you have another dialogue with two dead men on the floor. I find the plot slow and wrong, giving 2 stars for the work put into making the movie

Dangerous Lies

This movie was quite intriguing and mysterious with a definite Alfred Hitchcock twist. I think all the negative reviews come because so many movie goers now days only enjoy watching an animated production and can't sink their teeth into a real movie that involves a little thought. Not for children but much better than most movies made today.
