    he was good at it

    Maybe you can answer this: *** SPOILER ALERT***

    Why didn't he just drive over Albert Brooks like he did his partner, instead of walking up to him so he could get knifed

    No I really liked the movie, great cinematography, pacing was excellent, good acting.....but I say that's a plot flaw

    all of this. I totally dug it. The pace of the flick brought a lot of tension.

    yea there a coupla scenes that the director who i am a fan of took a a risk and went a different way...

    the scenes of ryans and alberts shadow in the parking lot and long cut to ryans still face in the car after the fact...was like ok does he make this a happy ending or bit of a downer?


    i was that invested in the characters

    That's kind of what I figure, but it got an 8.0 on imdb and at 76% on Rotten Tomatoes, so I thought I would give it a go

    Maybe it's just me, but every film I have seen of this kid Gosselen, He has no dialogue, maybe thats his thing, I dont know
