“Well, rarely do I write reviews for a film which could be acted out on stage, but despite its terrible reviews, I have to give this a 6/10 for the plot twist alone. I didnu0026#39;t it see coming.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e6 strangers are tied up and bound in a cellar. They all have no idea how they got there. They are told that only 1 will leave alive and itu0026#39;s up to them to decide on which one. As the story unfolds, we find a government agency is behind it and there is a secret reason they are all there. But is the reason given true, or is there something else going on? They all confess to being sinners, but despite the flashbacks we are shown, can anyoneu0026#39;s confession be trusted?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eu0026quot;The Eyesu0026quot; may not be a well acted film but to be honest, there is a reason for that too, as you will understand at the end of the movie. It makes me laugh at the reviews for those who trash the acting. I guess they miss the whole point of the film, or just werenu0026#39;t paying attention.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOne can argue that this is hardly a film by normal standards. Itu0026#39;s a play that happens to be acted out ON film, and as for its wooden direction or shoe string budget, who cares? I wasnu0026#39;t expecting Doctor Zhivago.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFor those who expect u0026quot;Sawu0026quot; because of the setup, it isnu0026#39;t. There is little violence if any in this film. What we really have here is an elaborate game being played out- a cat and mouse tale, whose sole purpose is to set up a very unique and clever twist. As time goes by, u0026quot;being originalu0026quot; is becoming harder and harder. They at least tried something clever. It does keep you guessing, and the ending makes it worthwhile- for those who are willing to hang in there.”
