It reminded me of Guy Ritchie movies - tracking back an forward in time, funny surreal moments, people breaking fourth wall to explain things, characters switching places, etc. The point is that each cop has to discard the system and do what he thinks is right, which results in a couple of shoot-first-ask-questions-later murders.

Nevertheless they do a good job around a poker table as veteran cops, telling stories. The "solution" of what is happening it's presented in "key phrases" from the beginning so if you want to follow the movie and enjoy it I suggest to pay attention from the start! The man behind the mask it might fool you too! Cop movies are nothing new, neither is terrorizing someone in a room. I thought the movie was gonna be a Saw meets cop movie sorta thing based on some reviews.

The beginning felt a tad weak, but i'm really splitting hairs here. They really got everything on the screen with this movie. I think if there's any real 'problem' with it is, it doesn't follow the typical arc people expect these days. More of an oblique 70's feel, where you don't have the satisfaction of a neat resolution or the hero doing the final heroic thing. But that's a good thing. All in all, it was actually one of the better movies I've seen this year.
Hope it gets legs. An intriguing story, told stylishly and in an interesting way. Add to that a cast of character actors that everyone must enjoy watching, and this couldn't really go wrong. Saying that, it was a bit messy early on, giving the distinct impression it was going to be a headache to stick with, style over substance perhaps.
I feared the worst, but it began to fall together nicely. Despite a nagging feeling it should have been even better given the premise, it was a good-looking and enjoyable film. And I loved the killer's flashback to his old life. A funny interlude in a generally grim movie. In this mix between Silence of the Lambs and Creep Show a rookie cop has to escape a serial killer whilst calling on the stories he was told during a poker night hosted by experienced police.
The stories are played out in flash back, as are some of the serial killer's. The actual plot of the film isn't that spectacular and some of the cop stories amount to little less than a routine arrest. But they are told extremely well with plenty of colour just the right blend of drama and quirkiness. The punishments the killer dishes out make you wince but were very subtly handled.
