"I agree re the rather cliched ending but apart from that this is an excellent film. Well made and acted and yes it does hark back to the classic 1970's thrillers.
All around excellent acting and a real joy of a thriller. I will be very surprised if this doesn't get a best film and director nomination for Affleck. Also there wil be no justice if Arkin doesn't get a best supporting actor nomination.
Go see. It is a good 4 star film with the poor ending sadly reducing a 9 out of 10 film to an 8 for me."
