Occasionally a movie comes a long that you have to rewatch just to connect the dots and put it all together. A fantastic psychological thriller right up to the end where it kinda messes itself up and over feeds and gets a little silly with the reasoning. The acting was superb and I found myself doubting the suspects over and over and changing my mind to who the killer was. Although, after rewatching there were definite clues along the way. The casting was fantastic as was the story. I found myself completely invested in the movie and dying to see how it would all pan out. Even though aspects where predictable I found myself surprised on more than one occasion. It is not often that I rewind a movie and rewatch the start just to see how it all fitted together.

Five friends share a key to a loft where they can hide their affairs away from their wives until the unthinkable happens and they find a dead girl handcuffed in the bed. The big question is who did it. As background stories are revealed and as they start to unreveal and point fingers at each other your left scratching your head. That is until the end and then it is all rather predictable except for the motive.

I did find some of the jumping around a tad confusing at first and trying to keep up with who was married to who and who was cheating with whom. Although, the plot is about affairs it is not in your face about it more about developing a back story of the conquests. One thing I did find concerning is why five male friends all needed to have affairs to begin with and how they were all okay cheating on their wives.

I think I also enjoyed the movie because of who the lead characters were. I think Karl Urban is doing New Zealand proud and he is a very talented actor who only seems to improve the more movies he does. definitely a watchable movie until the last fifteen minutes than takes a sharp downturn.
