I hadn't seen this before, but I'm glad I watched it on ITV3 last night, it was excellent.

Ah, so you approve of the death penalty and think all those who don't are cheats and liars. That's OK, the film was made for you.

I liked the film right down to the lame ending.

To enjoy a film one doesn't necessarily have to agree or disagree with its content.

It's been quite a long time since I saw it, but I remember liking it. Though I think there was one scene in particular (with the plastic bag) that I found quite uncomfortable viewing.

Great film. I loved the twist. Laura Linney gave an excellent performance.

That rings a bell with me but it's a while since I've seen the film and I can't remember what happens.

The film doesn't support the death penalty.

I mean, I saw it at the movies when it was first released and I've not seen it since so my memory's failing, but isn't the whole point of the film that

I have not got round to watching it. I read that Kate Winslet was good in it.

Yes, that's the whole point as far as I remember as well. Post 2 couldn't be more wrong.

Great film, Laura Linney and Kevin Spacey are just terrific in it.

I agree with those above saying it's an anti-death penalty film, not quite sure what the outrage in post #2 was all about

Even if it were a pro-death penalty film, I don't support wars but I've watched enough films that feature them

Overrated film. Particularly the ending. The final twist opens up so many plotholes it is completely unnecessary
