MY REVIEW
Plot: 4.95/ 5.0. The movie is very straight-forward. It was simple yet very captivating. The stunts look surreal and most of the time, I was left breathless (I have Acrophobia - fear of heights).

Penghayatan: 4.95/ 5.0. Joseph Gordon-Levitt played the part to the tee. Others too. Very believable and convincing. 

Will I watch it again : I would!
