Pleasantly surprised. Reminded me of something Hitchcock, the way it gradually builds up suspense to tell an engaging story.

Transparent and predictable. McGregor, Brosnan, and Williams deliver fine performances, but I have no idea what Kim Cattrall was doing here. No one, however, can overcome the problem script.

No bad, not spectacular either. Reasonable time waster.

It was also great to see cinematography that wasn’t ju More
