First off, Leo is a great actor. Now for the first half of the movie, it really grabs your attention as you have no idea what is going on. Leo is following leads and nobody is telling him what he wants to know. He thinks everyone is too afraid to tell him. Then the movie takes an epic new direction. Its like they made "What a twist" and "oh snap!" into a movie. Its like they faked a left hook, then hit you with a left hook. You will never understand what's going on until the dying moments. Which is awesome, the movie never boring, always something quirky or odd happening. Sadly there is little to no scare factor that I was expecting. But the amount of plot turns is absolutely insane, it felt like an hour of just plot twists.

8/10

I'll probably end up seeing this movie eventually. Glad to hear it sounds pretty entertaining.

You know the friends that try to predict what will happen next?
No way in hell they'll get it

I just saw it. Not bad! I have to say considering GI Joe was the last movie I saw before this one it was like I was communicating with God's mind after trying to communicate with an ant's mind. The acting was good...the characters were sufficient. The plot was engaging and impressive without being unrealistic.

I saw it. I had it all figured out about 1/4 of the way into the movie though >.<
