Elegantly coiled puzzler.

Soderbergh is so adept at drawing us into his cinematic web we are not aware that we've been cocooned for later consumption.

Starting off in one place and ending somewhere else entirely, Soderbergh's sleek mystery takes pot-shots at Big Pharma while still delivering a polished genre product that's rarely hard to swallow.

While the plot may be predictable (and more than a little preposterous) in retrospect, Mr. Soderbergh handles it brilliantly, serving notice once again that he is a crackerjack genre technician.

If this does prove to be Soderbergh's final film - and I wouldn't hold my breath - he picked a heck of a one to go out on.

In trying to merge this alarmist theme with an old-fashioned murder mystery, the filmmakers throw at least one plot-twist sucker-punch too many.

Soderbergh directs with a mixture of clinical precision and the zip of an old-school Hollywood journeyman.

Nice thriller, but not memorable.

A lazy DVD watch.
