This is the sort of movie where you wonder if it's the script or the actors that make it all feel a tad lacklustre, the hallmark of a TV movie rather than one aiming higher. It's an OK watch if you are feeling lazy, because if you approach the piece with all your wits about you you'll probably quickly spot the flaws in various plans being laid, and thus spoil the fun. Definitely a convoluted tale, though not entirely unpredictable, and certainly it has a moment or two of originality as far as stories like this go. My real problem is that overall the movie sends a mixed message, especially in regard to justice versus karma. I liked some of the music and the way it synced with the story, and if there was tension, then it was in taking odds on the ending, which had a surprise roundness to it. I liked the film myself, and certainly parts were brave, but I'm also glad that it was made in 2006 and not today.
