As I live outside of the US, I had no idea this was a series. I watched it as a movie and, as such, it was one of the best films I have seen in a long time. Milo Ventimiglia holds it all together. I predict future acting awards for him. The supporting actors also do well. The story will pull you in from the very beginning.

Briefly, those chosen must perform for the watchers, who, apparently, have the god-like ability to know all and see all. We are never really informed as to who the watchers actually are, only that they use a system of cameras to watch those chosen murder for their amusement. If there is a weak point, it is accepting the power of the watchers.

This film may slip under the radar, but it should not. If you have not seen the series, watch this film. I rarely rate films this highly, but, trust me, this one deserves it.
