Scott Hardie: “It sucked.”

[spoilers] Despite its promising premise, this movie offers exactly one (1) life and death for the hero before revealing the nature of the sinister forces, which might make suitable villains for a minor episode of The X Files. From there, it's a slow slog through one walking-speed chase scene after another, as the hero is menaced by pretty TV actresses and CGI smoke effects. And he becomes a superhero at the end, another film in 2008's lamest twist-ending fad. There are a few intriguing moments when the hero enters a new life unprepared, but like the legions of underachieving horror movies before it, this one has no ambition to be better than the paltry sum of its parts.
