I'd have to completly disagree with a reviewer who said this movie has many layers to it. I felt it was the exact opposite. You know the synopse, guy abducts kid and raises him to do his dirty work...thats all there is to this movie, the two of them in their house and their relationship with each other. Not to say thats a bad thing but i just kept waiting for it to go somewhere and it never really does. I didnt think the ending was clever at all either. What i did like about the movie though is that there is lots of great dialogue, particularly from the lead serial killer guy. He had some well writting quotable lines and came off as more than a little creepy in a few scenes. Not much blood or guts in this one, or at least not as much as you'd expect but some good charactersn are what make it watchable and above average.
