    A fine suspence movie. Nothing amazing, but a nice movie for a lazy evening at home. :)
    The story is quite simple, twistsless and not too illogical.
    The acting is fine. Freeman is good, Reeves not as good - well I never expected him to act, since I don`t think he`s that good an actor anyways. :)
    The video is nicely transfered (1.85:1), though I noticed a few scratches here and there.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is average. All the experiments scenes sound very real and I literally had to lower my sub`s volume, since the windows started shaking (some VERY low sounds there).
    The music is captivating, but there`s just not enough of it.
    All in all, if you don`t mind putting up with Reeves as the lead, you can surely enjoy this movie. A bit. :)
