Hated it. Couldn't get past the first 15 minutes. Such a horrible concept!

"This film tries to be edgy and suspenseful, but it's just a train-wreck in slow-motion. From the beginning, the viewer knows things will get ugly with the protagonists' friends and colleagues. Why the devil draw it out?
The main character is likeable enough, his wife unpleasant in a silly, yet believable way. Sadly, his best friend - turned - killer is just a foil for the protagonist, and watching him fall out of love with his bestie is agony. For God's sake, if you're making an action movie, get the betrayal over with quick and move on to the retribution. Stringing it out just makes your audience uncomfortable and grouchy.
This film tries to be a clever character study blended with speculative fiction. It fails at these things thanks to a cliche'd script, in spite of otherwise competent direction, acting and photography.
