Strong start with interesting dialogue, good acting and pace. When Dexter knows he's got not long to live the movie becomes bland to watch and sometimes cheap in how the story unfolds. The ending did tie into the beginning but the motive didn't fit... maybe if this was a comedy. It's not terrible but a shame.
