So I read all the reviews before going to see the movie....I don't know what people are thinking. This was a great film. It wasn't hard to follow at all, and the two hours went super quickly. I thought it was entertaining, and very interesting. I liked it a lot! Go see it!


This movie doesn't have one redeeming quality. The story was uninteresting. The movie's pace was elderly. Even the acting was poor. I don't understand why they would use such an icon as Frank Langela in such an impotent way. A lot of the the scenes didn't make sense - too much emphasis was placed on Cameron Diaz's deformity for no other reason than to give weight to an unbelievable answer to a question. I didn't get the significance of the water scenes. They tried to tie all the players of this game together that just didn't work at all. I was forcing myself to stay until the end but couldn't manage it. I can't remember the last time I walked out of a movie.


This movie was the 2nd lamest movie I think I've ever seen. (What rated #1 as the worst movie I've seen? The Fountain.) I liked the original Twilight Zone episode with this story, but this movie carried it too far beyond that without any point. There were so many "extras" that really never connected for me or my husband. Overall, it was just a waste of my time. Don't waste yours.


Don't be fooled by the trailers, which makes this movie look like a darker version of "indecent Proposal", that is, creepy but still a fairly conventional morality tale. After seeing the movie I realized that it is a remake of a mid-1980s New Twilight Zone episode, which came from an early 1970s short story by master science fiction author Richard Matheson. In stretching the short story into a feature length film, the plot line morphs into a gloomy, silly and extremely confusing array of scenes and under-written characters. It lost so many audience members along the way that I actually heard some hissing when the movie ended. And this was a sneak preview crowd that got in for free! I am a hardcore Twilight Zone fan and so probably liked it more than the average film goer, but that isn't saying much. If you really want to see this movie in a theater then act quickly because I think the word of mouth will kill it after its first week.


Very well done movie. If you've seen Donnie Darko, and were frustrated with its complexity, this movie will interest you. Not too complex, great acting, and an awesome story. Enjoy!
