Plot

Thoughts

A well executed movie from director Danny Boyle and he packed up a nice thriller movie with a satisfying ending on his film debut. Screenwriter John Hodge maintains the pace of the story and the consequences for the actions of each character were nicely told. Another plus point of the film is its music that serves as an ironic counterpoint. Overall, it's an enjoyable movie if you like black comedies.
