Comment:
This is one of the best movies that I've ever seen but still it has got a green. Reason - The last 5 minutes. A gory twist at the end which is a BIG let-down. An anti-climax gone very-very wrong. Though, I'd recommend you to watch it for what is before those 5 minutes - any day. Another movie with a fantastic multi-chronology screenplay.
