This is not a Sci-fi Thriller, but it's Engaging
20 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I kept reading the description of this Movie as a Sci-Fi genre. It isn't.

It's more a Suspense Thriller. NOT an ACTION Thriller-- A Suspense Thriller. But you have to be patient. It starts off with what seems to be two disparate story lines than will slam together very soon.

A writer on book signing tour becomes embroiled in a very convoluted and deadly conspiracy which centers around one of his books.

The tone and visual flow of the movie makes me think of the old Bond Movies-- but like I said-- this is NOT an action flick. The web of conspiracy makes me think of some old spy Movies-- yet this isn't a Spy Movie.

Another reviewer hit a bulls-eye with one descriptor-- Hitchcock. This is Hitchcock for the 21st century.

SO this one is a movie for a Saturday Evening. You have to be ready to think and LISTEN to the dialogue. If your Girlfriend does not pay attention with you, you need a smarter girlfriend.

Oh, and this movie goes good with wine.
