Uneven thriller gets off to a strong start with interesting, well-drawn characters, but quickly degenerates with a few too many credibility-stretching plot twists. Strong performances, and good use of the Souther California wildfires makes for some interesting cinematography, but for the most part this one's forgettable.
Tremendously underrated. People are way too hard on LaBute's later works. I'd say this is easily one of the best and most thought-provoking thrillers I've ever seen. Normally movies like this always have the characters making dumb decisions and never doing what a normal person would do in the situations it sets up. Not once did that happen with this one. Sure, maybe it's not 100% realistic, but it's just a movie!
