She finds herself smitten with richie, He is deeply entagled in illegal activties.He is subsequently kidnapped by local agent shavers. Shavers force him to do cooperate with him. Did he cooperate with him?? What happened to ivan bloke??are main parts of the story.
This is a 90 minutes film made by brad furman. He just only concentrated on plush cars, boats and scantily clad women. It fails to entice the audience with twists. It lacks all the essential elements that are required to a thriller. The next batman,Ben affleck has done his best to appear as the boss of online poker game. Justin timerlake steals the show upto some extent. He is good in his role. Gemma arterton looks so gorgeous. She justified her role. All the others characters have supported very well.However, This is not an impressive thriller.
