Review: (#1) Compositionally, the design works quite well, the balance fits alongside the coloration. Yet, the light reflecting on the right comes from nowhere and the backdrop doesn’t quite look like the place our protagonist is walking. (#2) Eliminating the balance of the frame makes for something significantly less interesting.

Trailer Rating: C

Review: Little about this Eric Bana film feels fresh. Returning home where you aren’t wanted and suspected of a heinous crime only to solve another doesn’t seem like a terribly exciting prospect when presented in the way this trailer tries.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
