The Number 23

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else seen this? I was thoroughly entertained throughout, even though it was a Joel Schumacher movie. :ph34r:

Great psychological horror film.

No, but I want to see it. My friends and I have this game where we put our "movie rep" on the line by guaranteeing movies well before they are being promoted. 23 was my friends pick. My last pick was The Prestige.

Me=Jim Carey fan, I need to see this.

My thoughts exactly. One of the greatest actors of our time. Carrey has shown his chops dramatically before but a crazy conspiracy-laden insane crime thriller is what I really want to see him excel at.

It was really good, but the ending grated me severly.

SPOILERS AND SUCH

I'm really growing tired of "main character is the killer" as a plot twist. It's become so overused at this point, that if a movie of this genre actually ends with the main character NOT being the killer, it's a twist in and of itself.

***SPOILERS ABOUND***

I kind of agree there, but I was satisfied with the ending in that it was a logical conclusion with him accepting that he was a murderer and going to prison voluntarily. Was it clich├ęd and underwhelming? Sure, to an extent, but at least it had closure in a Law & Order: Criminal Intent kind of way. Plus, if you remember what the wrongfully convicted man (whose name escapes me at the moment) said to Walter when they conversed through the prison gate, you kind of get the feeling that Walter's family will abandon him eventually. So, it is kind of sad in a way.
