Mr. Ejiofor gives a commanding performance, perfectly calibrated in what's withheld just as much as what's revealed.

It's certainly not Mamet's signature rapid-fire dialogue, but it's an intriguing and engrossing departure.
It never really pulls itself together into the convincing, focused drama it promises, yet it kept me involved right up until the final scenes, which piled on developments almost recklessly.
As the heart and soul of the film, Chiwetel Ejiofor once again impresses.
Mamet regulars Ricky Jay and Joe Mantegna blend well with Mamet newbie Tim Allen, a treat as a spoiled-rotten aging Hollywood action star.
