Am I the only one who doesn't understand how this film can be so low rated? And this is coming from someone who isn't even that huge of a fan of the film. But seriously, it's a great film, and it definitely deserves to be ranked higher up.

Adrien Brody is fantastic and the production is faultless. But, while it is a competent film and had a voice to it, I didn’t find it all that interesting.
