Judging by the other comments and reviews on this page, everyone else is confused and disappointed by the "twist" and "turns" throughout the movie.
Firstly, I am not very familiar with the actress that played the main girl. I think I am one of the very few who never watched GOT or The Tudors, with that being said, I think she did an OK job. Wasn't a phenomenal actress, but she wasn't wooden or horrible either. I would say just kind of...dull?
Real Spoilers Below:
I knew from one of her first flash backs when I saw 2 little girls hiding in the closet, that she wouldn't actually be blind and take the one kid who died (who was actually blind) spot. (Also figured that kid died considering they also show in her flashback she is the only one being carried away.) I paid very close attention to see if she ever gave off any clues she wasn't actually blind. As far as I could tell, although me not actually being blind and all, she didn't ever slip up or give up the notion, even while not being watched at all, that she did have sight. Like when slipping the poison into the bad guys drink, why not just break character for 10 seconds to complete your "24 year" old mission?? There's a difference between tricking the audience and misleading the audience.
I am not a history buff and don't know tons about the Bosnian War, but why did the bad guy come and blow away her whole family? Also, did he know that it was his supposed daughter and the woman he raped? Was that why he killed them? Or was it random?
Who was the old man that coughed non-stop and the one that took her away in her flashback? Is that her father? How did the bad guy know that some woman he raped ever had a kid that was blind? Did he follow up on her? Did he love/know her? But also, how do you end up being raped 2 times by the same person randomly? He had to of "known" her? So his real daughter is the one that died in the shooting in her flashback.
One final thing about who was who's daughter. So the woman upstairs that is murdered, bad guys daughter...did our main girl know this before moving in? Or did it just so happen she moved in below her? I am assuming she knew which is why she was so new to the building and had been stalking/wanting to kill the bad guy since she was a small child?
Also, did the identity she stole, was that right after the coughing old guy saved her? Or did she do that recently to better help stalk the bad guy?
What was up with the brother sister combo? Why was the sister hated by the bad guy towards the end? Wasn't she one of his minions throughout? Why did our main girl and this guy act madly in love after only knowing each other, what seemed to be a few days? Did they try to solidify that by the sex scene?
This movie, I think, could have been fairly good, had they not left so many things unanswered and plot holes. Also, I need a drink.....
