This movie took me by surprise it wasn't what I expected. But ended up being good, and I thought the ending was perfect!!! But that one character I never liked him---not even in six feet under!!! LOL

I couldn't even watch the end of this movie

This movie does offer some suspense... but it's crap. Bruce Willis gives a mediocre performance, it's a pretty slow paced movie, and there's way too much swearing(it got on my nerves). Bottom line... It's boring

Great for grown Ups!

Good movie, well worth seeing. Teens should not see this movie unless accompanied by an adult. There is a lot of tough content including rape, drugs, theft, and murder.

this movie traumatize me. don't get me wrong, it was pretty good from what i saw but i couldn't get thru it. from the opening scene with the first negotiation up until just after the guy shot the officer. those two scenes seemed so real life like it freaked me out. maybe one day i could finish the movie but not anytime soo.
