This film has all the ingredients of a neo noir thriller, with an intriguing plot line and likable, though conventional, characters guiding us along. The tone, characters and dialogue are all things we've seen before, with only the plot being something rather inventive.
As a fan of neo noir crime thrillers, this was right up my street and I enjoyed it, hence the 6/10. The film could be a lot better, but you know what you're getting with this and if you're a fan of the genre you'll probably enjoy it. Some of the dialogue is humorous, too, causing a number of people in my showing of the film to laugh.
The film has a distinct European feeling and tone, as well, if you like that, and some nice Gothic imagery at times. Not everyone's cup of tea, but it is an enjoyable crime thriller for any interested.
