I thought it may be very contrived and formulaic but interesting, and what the hell-I was bored.

If you can find this movie somewhere, I highly recommend it.

All the characters had distinct personalities, which kept their conversations entertaining.

I was on the edge of my seat the entire movie.

Very entertaining with great plot twists.

Ryan Reynolds is fascinating to watch and probably the best reason to view the film a second time.

It was enjoyable-- that is what the critics need to remember-- if it keeps you watching until the end to see what happens it did its job.

That's how the movie is set up in this fast paced film with great acting.

The action seems, at times, like a filmed stage play, but the performances by all save the film from being boring or losing the audience's interest.

The whole scenario is contrived and predictable.

Apparently a failed attempt to be a tight, dialogue intensive, character driven, one set drama (eg: The Big Kahuna, Glengarry Glen Ross, etc.), this flick is couch potato fodder.

I was drawn into it instantly and cringed as it became more and more intense.

Confusing Plot Twist .

As it stands, 'Finder's Fee' is a good little film that will serve as an enjoyable rental.

Written and Directed by Jeff Probst, there are so many great plot twists that keep you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.
