This is one of those films that feel as if it was based on a book. It contains layers of meaning and deserves more than a superficial viewing. There are ample clues from the first scene so the point of the story isn't the "twist" ending M. Knight Shyamalan is noted for. The ending leaves you asking yourself the question -- what price peace? There is a children's book -- Running Out Of Time -- which has some similar elements and has been compared to this film. Read the book, watch the film.
