Entertaining, but disappointing that the plot lamely relies on one of the characters having supposed psychic powers to feed the police information to advance the story and that the so called 'Perfect Murder' relies on a significant stroke of luck, which is even acknowledged in the dialogue, almost as if to apologies for or dismiss it. It would have been easy to adjust the script to remove the psychic and luck elements to achieve a far more credible and satisfying plot. Otherwise the cast are all very good and I would recommend seeing it.
