Director: Steven Soderbergh
Starring: Channing Tatum, Jude Law

All is not as it seems in this thriller and the viewer realises this soon after the movie opens. A young lady visits a psychiatrist after attempting suicide and receives medication which helps control her depression. However, the side effects of this medication are like no other, allegedly causing her to sleepwalk and have no recollection of her actions. When she commits murder the blame falls on the psychiatrist for prescribing this drug. His life takes a turn for the worst, he loses his job, his wife leaves him and his reputation is tarnished. But will he uncover the undisputable facts which he desperately requires to clear his name?

This psychological thriller has one major downfall....there are no thrills. It takes forever for the story to unravel, so much so that the viewer restlessly wonders whether anything much will eventuate. Action is nonexistent, just a knife attack which is sure to shock and a few twists and turns at the end. Tatum Channing only has a supporting role which is inconceivable owing to his huge popularity. The cast all play well, especially Catherine Zeta Jones who’s lusciously enjoyable as the arch villainess.

This “no frills” movie is quite average & should have been released straight to DVD. However it will appeal to amateur sleuths who enjoy unravelling murder mysteries before the perpetrator is revealed.
