Films of this ilk rely heavily on their lead characters. Farrel helps to define himself as an actor and a lead here. He's now made himself into one of Hollywood's hottest properties and in this film he doesn't disappoint. The plot is full of twists and turns and it amounts to a very enjoyable ride.
