The first thing I ever heard about this movie was that Daniel Craig and other cast members refused to promote the movie because the hated how it was edited. Now that left a sour taste in my mouth, but I decided to watch it.
For those who don’t know, the movie follows Will as he leaves his job behind to spend more time with his wife and kids in their newly purchased house. They soon find out the previous tenants were found dead, all shot by the husband, who had survived. After that, Will goes on a mission to find out the mystery of his house.
The movie is well acted and stars Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Naomi Watts. The three, along with the supporting cast to a great job with the decent script. My biggest problem is I can’t tell if Craig was going for an American accent or not. Everyone else seems to have one, but his sounds only slightly different from his actual voice.
The biggest problem is that the studio ruined the movie with their trailers. They gave away huge plot details and ruined any chance of having a fun movie going experience. Though, if you avoid the trailers, you might actually enjoy this one. It is far from perfect, as the story is odd at points and doesn’t make sense. But overall, I give it a 7 out of 10.
