I'm going to post this here until its proper forum is created and moved.

Cast: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, January Jones, Aidan Quinn, Bruno Ganz, Frank Langella.
Dir: Jaume Collet-Serra.

This is a high-concept thriller: A man meets an accident and suddenly finds his life and everything and everyone he's ever known taken away and the key to high-concept thrillers is to make the big reveal of what-the-hell-is-going work. The film does a good job of setting everything up with nice Hitchcockian touches here and there but the payoff is a bit of a disappointment. The film still manages to entertain thanks to Liam Neeson who, once again, keeps everything together.

Oscar Prospects: None.

Grade: C

Return to “2010”
