Yeah... this is a good movie. I saw it again because I remembered it as being good and original, and so it was!

Farrell does a great job, and since he is almost the only character in the different scenes that's important. I've heard/read that it was shot within 7 days... I believe the fully and think they have done a good job at focusing on on e story, that actually is possible to relate to some how... They could make a sequel for this one, but I guess there's actually some brains behind who won't let that happen.

A good movie... worth seeing!

This is really a very simple movie about a very short timespan in a very small area. The fact that it is so small is what makes it good.
Breaking down the shot shot Stu via only a phone call (and a sniper rifle) has a very high potential for a thrilling movie, if executed properly. Unfortunately this is only averagely one, in my opinion.
I like that it is short and effective and with a very evil twist in the end, so still a recommendable movie but not fully fantastic.
