I saw this movie yesterday, and I was very disappointed. I had hoped for a little more suspenseful action, but it seemed very mediocre.

Bummer. Yes, I was looking for something along the lines of The Manchurian Candidate. Something more sinister.

I hate to say it, but Matt Damon has not really been picking winners lately; first Hereafter, now this. And what's with Mad Men cast members starring with Good Will Hunting actors in recent movies?!

This movie just isn't very good. Seems like about half way through the movie they ran out of idea and at about the halfway opoint I got very bored.

The tone was also a little bit off, I found myself laughing a l;ittle in parts that probably wasn't supposed to be funny.

It's OK. Just OK. BajanYankee nailed it so I won't add anything else.

Has anyone viewer of this film seen Dark City? They seem eerily similar.

Another vote for Bajan's excellent assessment of this dull and uninteresting movie.

I got bored about halfway through it and started rooting for the guys wearing the nifty fedoras to do a brain-wipe and reset on BOTH the lovers, who had little chemistry IMHO.

You can skip this one. Very forgettable.
