Forgettable thriller about two unhappily married strangers (Jennifer Aniston and Clive Owen) whose chance meeting on a commuter train sparks an affair, cut short when their hotel room tryst is intruded on by a vicious thug (Vincent Cassel), who proceeds to blackmail them, entangling them in a spiral of violence and deception. Directed by Mikael Hafstrom, what could have been a smart cautionary tale about the consequences of deceit is instead derailed by a predictable plot and a ridiculous, morally problematic ending, in which a character literally gets away with murder. An adulterous sexual encounter, a rape, bloody violence including several shootings and a stabbing, as well as much rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
