(Quick Unprofessional Review)

I usually love crime thrillers like this but I was kind of of let down. Actually surprised now to see that so many people totally loved this. It's shot and acted brilliantly but I had problems with the writing. I usually don't have problem with violence/sex in movies but this movie really took it to the edge where it became a bit unnecessarily ridiculous for me. Another thing that griped me was how characters kept surviving even while taking brutal death-inducing punishment. I was into it through out but it dragged and went too long. Seeing the killer let loose constantly while he kept killing got tiring and frustrating. Sadly it didn't live up to the hype for me. Though, It really reminded me of Memories of Murder which I absolutely loved. I would recommend that if you haven't seen it already.
