Pointless drivel.

While "Nemesis Game" is mildly entertaining, I found it hard to suspend my disbelief the whole length of the movie, especially the situations that Sara was putting herself into.

Carly Pope was powerful in the lead role and showed a depth of complexity that was fascinating to watch.

This movie was thoroughly enjoyable, kept us on the edge of our seats and made us really think.

It nevers bores you for a second and keeps on going like a book, that you don't want to close before you've read it completely.

The plot was well paced and the storyline intriguing and much like real life, not everything ends up tied in a nice neat little package for you at the end of the film.

This is really one pointless movie to watch because it just isn't heading anywhere with its story.

The film develops a pair of wispy, marginally intriguing, and converging plot lines; Sara and her riddle game and her father, a cop, and his interrogation of a murder suspect.

Everyone was convincing and compelling with the parts given to them.

Story does get confusing if you don't play close attention.

The riddles in this movie instead feel so utterly pointless and on top of that are also quite stupid ones.

Just some pointless, simplistic drivel about solving some silly riddles.

the ending was unexpected and therefore took me by surprise.

It's fast paced, well directed and creates suspense.

Seriously, this stuff is going nowhere and in the long run nothing in it makes really sense, since the movie simply doesn't bother to explain very much.

There is no tension or mystery because everything in this movie seems so incredibly stupid and pointless.


I expected this cheesy boring film that would be average.

put that aside and the movie is quite enjoyable.

Instead now the movie seems like a real pointless one but above all things also a terribly uninteresting one.

Storyline is complex but overall is quite interesting and different from most movie cliché or storyline.

There are a couple of murders along the way and the whole thing meanders to a climax which is more predictable than my mother-in-law's christmas dinner.

(sounds pretty dull, huh?

The start is a little slow and a little muddled.

The search for answers leads Sarah Novak down a path that gets darker as it gets more compelling.

I found the movie rather tedious with a poor script and nothing to keep me wanting to watch it at all.
