    Normally I pass on anything Hugh Jackman and 'Baby Wipes' Terrance Howard but this is getting off the charts positive reviews and audience feedback. Some are calling it part “Seven” part “Zodiac” part “Silence of the Lamb.”

    Gonna check it out with the lady friend tonight. Weekend is for football,

    Everything about it is making me not want to see it. The combination of actors. The kidnapping of a young kid (can't watch that with young kids), the trailers which make it seem over dramatic from a style perspective, which also includes Jackman belting out a "Where is my daughter!!" (which makes me think of the Jolie and Gibson similar lines about their sons from those movies)....

    ... But a well thought out, great, intense psychological thriller. You don't get those much.

    I want to see this. Its kind of weird how having a 3 year old makes stuff like this hit home a little more.

    Very good movie. Disturbing in some parts too which people in the audience had the audacity to laugh through. Some sick people out there.

    Better than Se7en??? I find that hard to believe... If this movie is as good as Zodiac, that's a plus for me.

    I was very impressed. Well acted well paced. Doesn't feel like a 150 min film because you're so engaged.
