I distinctly remember reading about this while it was in production and being keenly interested because of both the cast and the story. Then it never came to a local theatre, and I never heard about it again until it came up on my Netflix recommendations.

The cast is phenomenal. It’s about a group of men who wake up, locked up into an isolated warehouse with no recollection of how they got there or what’s going on. It quickly becomes known that of the 5 men waking up, three are captors and two are captive. The rest of the movie is trying to figure out who is who.

There are a lot of flashbacks leading the viewer in a number of directions. There is also some scenes from outside of the warehouse about the surrounding circumstances that boil down to a typical kidnap ransom scenario involving Bridget Moynahan, who’s husband was kidnapped.

At just under 100 minutes, it was a wonderful ride until the last 5 minutes. All the twists and turns in the foggy reveals go one step too far in the end which take this from a 4 down to a 3. Just that last one twist did it too much … It’s probably the reason why this didn’t do well. It’s still a good time, but not as good as one may hope from the story and cast.
