This movie really took me by surprise. I wasn’t expecting much and I got an unpredictable, intelligent thriller that, once it got going, had me on the razor’s edge of my seat.
The story follows a charming corporate headhunter named Roger Brown that lives far beyond his means and stays afloat by stealing and selling precious art. When he steals from a ruthless mercenary, however, Roger gets himself involved in something much bigger and becomes a hunted man.
The characters are interesting and the acting is fantastic; the plot delivers a plausible and entertaining game of cat-and-mouse, hitting all the requisite notes with a couple stand-out “no f#%!ing way” moments; and the ending delivers a satisfying twist and payoff.
Watch this move. It’s one of the better I’ve seen in a while.
