The script wrote itself into a corner at least halfway through...I'm not buying into this flash in the pan crap. This is where Sabin's "blech" should be approved and accepted.

I loved it. Possibly Farrell's best performance, and Gleason, Fiennes and my beloved Jérémie are all wonderful. Script kept me guessing throughout, and that's a surprise in this day and age.

I thought it sucked and sadly I saw it in theaters right when it came out...Farrell and Gleeson did some damn good acting with a script that was a ton of bullshit though.

Late to this, but loved it. Curious as to what others thought.
