Considering this is the first movie i have watched on Shuuder, this was really good. More of an Action Thriller in my opinion, but i give this the full 5 star rating

Good watch but doesn’t belong here as a horror movie. Its a mild thriller if that . But enjoyable

Good movie but definitely doesn’t belong on the site. A mild thriller . I found it dragged and just took way too long to wrap up

Spoiler alert! Second watch after three years. Still good. Stevens is icy. Monroe is great. Love her performances. Very nuanced and underrated actress. Overall, the film does suffer a bit from certain details but still manages to create suspense in spite of it. I think that comes down to good performances all around which can somewhat make up for a slightly wonky script. But yes, the script is stock standard. Not a horror. I'm trialing Shudder, so this is a definite red flag.

Decent movie, a very entertaining watch. A little cheesy and very far-fetched. Pretty disappointing and rushed ending. Story wasn't fleshed out entirely well. However, you can't deny that it was fun. Also, main guy was incredible.
