Directed by critically-acclaimed director Kenneth Branagh, Jude Law and two-time Oscar-winner Michael Caine (1987, Best Supporting Actor, Hannah and Her Sisters; 2000, Best Supporting Actor, Cider House Rules) join forces in this sharp-witted, modern adaptation of the 1972 classic, Sleuth. Locked in a high-tech English manor, bound in a deadly duel of wits, Andrew Wyke (Caine) and Milo Tindle (Law) come together as English gentlemen to discuss the matter of Wyke's wife: the woman both are sleeping with. But as wit becomes wicked and clever becomes cutthroat, Wyke and Tindle's game of one-upmanship spirals out of control, in an escalating chess match that can have only one outcome: murder.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This film wants only to entertain, and other talents have gathered with Pinter to help.
Rotten: Director Kenneth Branagh has mercifully pared the action down to 88 minutes (the first movie dragged on for 138), but the final act... still seems to go on forever.
Rotten: Just terrible.
Rotten: It doesnt work, and the reasons why are no mystery, no mystery at all.
Trust me on this one!!
RENT this movie DO NOT BUY!!! The best part of the entire movie is the MOVIE TRAILER.
This movie is a very interesting one, and while most definitely a thriller, it is an intellectual thriller. The acting is truly amazing, and the plot is sufficiently convoluted to keep all audience members who actually pay attention to the movie on the edge of their seats. Overall, with great acting, a great plot, and a stimulating ending, this movie delivers.
Only a couple of characters on screen in the entire film... this is what great acting truly is.
