Director: Jaume Collet-Serra

Writers: Oliver Butcher (screenplay), Stephen Cornwell (screenplay), and Didier Van Cauwelaert (novel “Out of My Head”)

Stars: Liam NeesonDiane Kruger and January Jones

Serious Jest:  (Worth Watching)  The less you know about this movie going in, the better.  Is it a spy flick?  Supernatural?  Psychological?  Medical?  The plot is engaging and entertaining, and the acting is well-executed.  I wouldn’t call this film a must-see, but it’s definitely worth the time to watch if you’re searching your HBO On-Demand for movies to watch.  I imagine that the book is better, because the movie’s biggest weakness is that it didn’t seem to have enough time to develop its characters adequately.
