Comment: Very interesting thriller about an underprivileged undergrad (Joshua Jackson) at a posh university being accepted into an exclusive organization. One for all and all for one proves not to be the best policy. Most of the action is a cat and mouse chase to obtain proof of an accidental death being covered up. Very strong acting from Jackson and Paul Walker, Leslie Bibb, William L. Peterson and Craig T. Nelson. This is more of a mind game than eye candy. Recommended with no regret.
