A consistent story line with few pointless disturbances, excellent ending and some deep questions about society included is more than you get in most movies these days.

Thanks to some clever writing and another great performance by Kingsley this film takes an interesting and unexpected turn to create a film that is much better than it would have been.

Don't waste your time on this.

This is just an awful movie and waste of time, i again recommend to watch the original movie "A Wednesday http://www.

I can only assume that they are struggling financially and boredom has set in their lives.

value, its a great effort, engaging and.....

This is an intriguing film that manages to create a story that is sure to keep you invested until the very end.

The editing is poor, the script is dull and at times laughable, filming is amateurish and the characters are superficial.

(Mister DIG) played by Ben Cross, another underrated British performer, in a suspenseful game of cat and mouse.

The acting is poor, and the script is cliché.

Worst movie I have seen in a long time.

Overall, worst movie ever...

Stilted acting in Common Man appropriately complements the lame dialog and amateurish editing, which leaves awkward pauses and delays to almost comical effect, while relieving the viewer of any anticipation of an enjoyable experience early on.

This was undoubtedly the worst movie I have ever paid to see and feel considerably cheated by the fact that it was even available for hire.

I thought this movie was intriguing .

Ben Kingsley is an incredibly underrated actor and his performance alone here makes this film worth watching, particularly because of the wasted potential of his villainous character in Iron Man 3 as The Mandarin.

Don't waste your time

The story is so predictable, and easy to find out the ending after 30 mins of movie.

worst movie ever.

This remake is a just an absolute waste of time.

At the end of the movie - on is just left feeling flat and bored!!

A Comman Man lacks everything the original had working for it except of the gripping plot - which is still the same!!
