I was rooting for the "bad guy" the entire time, probably because the "good guy" was a rich thief/douchebag/Napoleon complex dickhead. The story was interesting though and the directing was good enough to keep it going

Tonally this film seems all over the place as the first half of the film builds up an atmospheric sense of mystery and paranoia, but as the lead character's life begins to unravel, the film veers from thriller to comedy and action to slapstick and back again. Never less than entertaining though, with the two male leads clearly enjoying themselves and bringing the audience along with them for the ride. There are many plotholes if you start to think about it, and the resolution to the film is a little too neat but it's still a worthwhile film to watch.
