Great movie! Keeps you in suspense not knowing what is going to happen. I don't know why others have said it's slow. What do they want? non stop action? The 'slow' part is about presenting the characters and the development of the relationships between them. It sets the stage for the events that unfold.
This movie moved extremely slow. Parts of it didn't make sense and the ending tied up no loose ends.
Overall it was fairly boring and I would not recommend.
Waste of time really, if you want to see an attractive young woman struting her stuff infront of a bunch of men to the confusion of her husband, who are both supposed to be intelects.... than this is the movie for you. I'm only giving it two stars because I only made it half way through (and cant speak for the other half) it was so boring and didnt get to see any action of any kind.... sorry
This was an unmemorable movie and I can't remember what it was about so it can't have been very good.
should have been good but wasn't. too slow to start and stupid at the end. even if you want a senseless violent movie this is only just passable
Not worth watching, very poor and a waste of time!
Give it a miss and try North Country
great movie,edge of the seat stuff
This was a good thriller. I haven't seen any good ones for quite a while. I enjoyed this movie.
Not quite what I was expecting, but the script and acting is top shelf for a thriller. A few moments actually shocked me, and by the end I felt satisfied with this movie as a whole, it just doesn't do anything extraordinary.
expected it to be a good movie with all the stars but was a bit letdown.
Considering the movie had a great cast, this film and story line did not work for me at all... considering how realistically uncomfortable the rape scene was it makes you wonder how Kate Bosworth and Alex Skarsgard got into a romantic relationship in real life!!
Fairly slow paced movie. As others have said, the acting was ok, but there was a lot of nothingness until the end of the movie which didn't quite meet my expectations. After reading the synopsis I was expecting a movie similar to The Strangers - which i'd definitely recommend - but this was far from it.
Terrible, Too much violence and the F word throughout.
Not to our taste
Slow to start but the ending was great.
Good actors given a poor script. the acting is the only thing that makes this movie bearable otherwise I would have not seen it through to the end
this was very very slow to start off with, the story did not really happen till the game then the only action was in the end!! slightly disappointed but had a good selection of actors
good movie, good acting, parts of the movie was very unnecessary ,took awhile to get into the movie had slow parts but other then that a enjoyable thriller with good action and violence...
What I like is the very good acting. Marsden has never been so good. What I hate is how the plot unfolds and gets too much improbable. The characters (especially the victims) just behave unlogically and you wonder if they are humans! So the real weakness of the movie might be the script and unfortunately that's all it takes to turn a good movie into a bad one. A shame when it started so well and the actors were doing such a good job.
L.A. screenwriter David Sumner relocates with his wife to her hometown in the deep South. There, while tensions build between them, a brewing conflict with locals becomes a threat to them both. You just want wring the necks of these good ole boys who think they are above the law. James Woods is marvelous as the redneck from hell. I enjoyed this film
An OK re-make of the 1971 Straw Dogs starring Dustin Hoffman. Basically a story of a city slicker mixing it with the local yokels, throw in a sexy wife, a rape, and lots of violence and that in a nutshell is the Movie.
i actually enjoyed this movie :)
