Speculating weaknesses is often a weakness in itself, especially when greed and impatience are in the mix. Here’s a funny crime movie about an insurance agent who wants to get out of his present situation, and fast too. He needs money and is determined to obtain it, so he keeps scruples out of his way, enabling the circumstances for smooth twists. Although it lacks that special extra quality which makes the difference between good and great movies, it’s a movie worth watching.
Greg Kinnear is as awesome as always, and Crudup is just as good in his role.
It may seem a bit dull in appearance, with lots of snow and ice – but that’s the setting of the story, so it makes sense 🙂
Would I see it again? – Someday, maybe 🙂
My Rating (1 to 10): 8
Keep away from spoilers.
