Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This blend of Scandinavian gloom and Hollywood hokum never jells.
Rotten: While a mob thriller can be as nasty as it likes, what it can't be is silly.
Rotten: Explores a common ground for noir thrillers before stumbling and imploding in a climax that feels like it might have been hijacked from an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.
Fresh: Yep, there's a whole lot going on here, but this is one of those plot-heavy scripts that carries its weight with confidence - the intricate twists don't cheat.

If you bare with it long enough, the story to this movie will make sense. Colin Farrell is no longer a feature A-lister actor, he's better as a co-star. Rent movie but don't buy!
The movie has its moments, I give it a 6 out of 10.
