Daniel Craig's not the only one having flashbacks

Too-perfect couple (in life and on screen) Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz and their too-cute kids set up home in the snowy suburbs... only for Craig – surprise! – to start experiencing alarming flashbacks.

He’s not the only one. Anyone who’s seen the original HK horror, the trailer, or, indeed, any psychological thriller ever made, will soon guess what’s going on in Jim Sheridan’s (In America) curiously flat thriller.

Any further plot twists are the result of 11th-hour studio tinkering and make no sense at all. The result is an attractive but empty shell of a movie, and a five-minute Making Of barely sweetens the deal or illuminates anything.
