Directed by critically-acclaimed director Kenneth Branagh, Jude Law and two-time Oscar-winner Michael Caine (1987, Best Supporting Actor, Hannah and Her Sisters; 2000, Best Supporting Actor, Cider House Rules) join forces in this sharp-witted, modern adaptation of the 1972 classic, Sleuth.

Locked in a high-tech English manor, bound in a deadly duel of wits, Andrew Wyke (Caine) and Milo Tindle (Law) come together as English gentlemen to discuss the matter of Wyke's wife: the woman both are sleeping with. But as wit becomes wicked and clever becomes cutthroat, Wyke and Tindle's game of one-upmanship spirals out of control, in an escalating chess match that can have only one outcome: murder.

    I really enjoyed this movie, it kept me guessing the whole time as I wasn't really too sure where it was going. I am keen to see the original now too.

    Bit surprised by genre, is this the only movie I have seen that has only two characters on stage? Tension was there but failed to grip my attention

    I enjoyed the first part of the movie where the dialogue becomes more important than the actors. During the second part, the acting was centre stage. But unfortunately, in the final part, there was... Read more

    An extremely strange and twisted movie that doesn't improve with time. It was slow and incredibly like a narration, rather than the movie it was supposed to be. This made it much too long for the story I guess they were trying to tell.
