A formula movie of the Bornne genra. Predictable script with the macho profanity trying very hard to be hip and clever. Multiple continuity glitches, Sloppy editing, directing and characters almost cartoon like. Wonderful interesting locations with fantastic camera work for the film nerds.
Keaton did a good job with his character but his performance was contrived and over the top which is the directors fault.

Just a time killer at best....another case of the trailer being better than the film....

and CBS films...who are they???

I have seen advertising for this on the sides of buses, but no advertisements on the television, and no advertisements on the net.

Care to give a brief overview of the plot setup?

Watch the trailer. It pretty much tells the story.

Oh... yes. I see.

I would echo the sentiments of Komodo... wait for the DVD. Seems a little... overwrought. Like a My Chemical Romance album got knocked up by a James Bond flick, and this is the asylum dwelling, navel gazing result.
