    Looks pretty thrilling. I've never read the books by Jo Nesbo--the detective's name always cracked me up ("Harry Hole")--but will check this out.

    Did anyone here see this? Is it as terrible as the reviews are saying? I was thinking about catching it on $5 Tuesday, but the reviews have scared me off.

    I'm planning on seeing this tomorrow. I don't usually read reviews as I don't want any more spoilers than the trailer gives away.

    It sounds like the director of this movie is even saying that it is not very good. Something about budget cuts or time constraints didn't allow him to properly finish the movie. I thought it looked good, but so far everything I have read seems to really hate the film. I will probably check it out eventually but kind of a let down as cool as it looked from the trailers.

    Saw this today with a very small crowd (around six other people). I won't say it's a bad film but it is rather long and slow. It reminded me of a TV cop show except that it was around two hours long. I didn't know that Val Kilmer and Chloe Sevigny were part of the cast but both had rather small roles. Could have been much better.
