    I love crime movies; however, I just watched this movie and have declared it the most boring movie I have ever seen.

    A very long movie, but also a very good one. I didn't find it hard to sit through. Bit disappointed by the ending, but it is a true movie so they (the movie makers) couldn't help that. Overall, I recommend... Read more
