This movie could have opened up some interesting questions about reality vs fantasy, guilt vs innocence, and even good vs evil. However it is, overall, more eye candy than profound or thought provoking. I've found in the past I rarely watch eye candy films more than once after I buy them. Without a good story to grab on to they are just too boring and repeated viewings don't reveal anything new. For that reason I'll pass on this. (but to each his own).
