I watched this based on the great cast and the trailer. I wish I had read a few more of the reviews before committing to watching however. This is an odd movie, in that it takes place in a strange environment lit with neon and hardly anyone else apart from the main protagonists, so its almost a kind of fantasy movie. The one star is awarded purely on the fact this movie looks pretty good, but this wears thin fairly quickly. The problem with the people as they are portrayed is that their is no one that you latch onto, everyone seems to be some type of horrible person or a psycho so you don't really care what happens to anyone. The story has a number of twists and apart from one the rest are guessable, the fact is that if there are only so many players in the game, its not hard to guess who the "hidden" person is, or that they may have met in the past etc. I was quite surprised to discover it was possible to have so much acting talent on screen and , albeit mostly B movie grade, and still not feel engaged with the story. The ending was particularly poor, p.s. that isn't how that procedure was carried out and it wouldn't have had the effect portrayed in the movie. It also seemed to out of step with the rest of the tone of the film, it seemed more extreme than the rest of the violence. It was also oddly unsatisfactory as an ending, like I said, if you aren't rooting for the main character or anyone then its hard to feel contentment if they find a resolution. If you liked Only God Forgives you may like this, it has a similar neon style over substance emptiness to it which will polarise an audience with a majority disliking it.
