If you enjoy a film with a good story line, one that you have to follow into each and every twist and turn, this is definately one of the best for a while. However, if you're looking for multi-million dolar special effects, unbelievable stunts and action, look elsewhere.
This film is about people, which is what, I think, makes it so appealing. And to think that it was based on a true story seems unreal. You are drawn in the moment the film starts, and from then on, i was hooked and didn't want to miss any of it. And as the plot deepens, your mind goes into over drive trying to figure out how it can all end?? It does end (eventually!), and its a pleasent surprise. I won't say any more than that because knowing the ending could easily ruin the whole film!
There is nothing in particular that stands out to entitle to movie to a prestigous 5-star review, but also, there is nothing bad to bring it lower than the 4 stars i've awarded.
It isn't a comedy, nor is it a serious drama. It's a decent, all-round good movie. Definately worth buying.
