    Our Verdict:

    Green Tea says:

    I thought it is another hefty erotic movie. Nope, it becomes a romantic movie. Later, it becomes a thriller. This is an amazing movie in terms of the theme it trying to portray, where I thought it is a good combination - too bad they don't really flow well. The casts have very much impact in the movie. I think Hugh Jackman suits as a hunky but badass lawyer. Ewan McGregor is awesome with the nerdy look, while Michelle Williams is just hot in the movie. Too bad, the chemistry of love between Gregor and Williams is nowhere strong.

    The storyline and plots are just simple, easily predicted and wasn't that thrilling as well. Advertise as a romantic-thriller, the movie goes no where, but I love the concept here. But another bad side is that there are as much flaws and loopholes as it can be seen on the entire movie. But on the other bright side, the movie is definitely having those kind of thriller feel although the thrill only appear on the last half. Kill your time just to watch their high quality performance, but I thought this movie is worth a try!!
