And so begins the game of cat and mouse. Who’s who swaps and spins on its axis throughout, and that’s fun to see, but overall the film feels stale. Worse, I didn’t buy Allen and LaPaglia as a couple. That’s the lynchpin of the whole story: devotion vs. duty, love and loyalty vs. evil and ethics. It’s quite a conundrum to be sure, and while the actors themselves are good in their roles, they simply do not have chemistry.
The movie’s worth a watch, but just one.
