My quick rating - 4,8/10. This movie was just so close to being good. The blurred lines between dreams and reality and trying to make you guess without having to guess could've worked. There was just something missing in the presentaion of it overall. I cannot quite place where the problem was. The acting was bland, but not terrible. The story follows a guy who seems to just snap and turn into someone else at times uncontrolably. When this happens, people die. Assassin style such as being programmed to do it. I can't really get to far into it without spoilers but suffice it to say it was interesting enough, just not something I would watch again. Feel free if you catch it for free in your method of doing so, but don't plan an evening around it.
