User Review

It's OK — nothing special

Rating: 6/10


This movie takes a long time to get going, and I frequently found
myself throwing in the flag. There are a lot of events which
happen that just don't make sense and don't ring true.

Initially Wes Bentley irritated me, but eventually I got to like him
and his character. He's pretty good at playing a dissociative
psychopath.

Once the story got going it was easy to forgive the obvious mistakes
and just have fun with it. The setting, a parking garage, is very cold
and unforgiving. It's all concrete. That aesthetic helps set a tone
that Thomas is going to be unforgiving. closed, and cold with people he
doesn't like.

Angela (Rachel Nichols) doesn't suffer from stupid chick syndrome. She
makes a few smart moves, and that makes it easy to root for her and
empathize with her. You want her to kick butt, but Thomas is a pretty
strong opponent.
