    Very good movie. The multiple POVs were actually done really well. A good watch, well worthwhile. Hardly surprisingly, didn't make it huge in cinemas, because it requires a little bit of thought and intelligence...

    if you like "24" you might also like this. I hate "24". The film is twitchy repetitive and annoyiing.

    Fast action, car chases and some stars, not sure I liked the going back in time and jumping between character in this movie.

    Watchable for the good action scenes, but certainly wouldnt call it a thriller or suspense laden. Feels weird the way it finished and the trailer for the film had me expecting something else. Good that they tried something different.
