Surprisingly entertaining. Elijah Wood does a good job as the tormented pianist. Semi-clever plot, but a semi-predictable ending.

Nice music, but try the alternative ending...

Surprisingly excellent! Personally, I cant enjoy @ 70% of the CRAP that the major Hollywood studios produce, but 90% of America sucks it up.

Thinking mans film. Thrilling saga of a Gifted pianist battling his former failure and overcoming this to save his wife, and his career. Kudos to the producers...you will hear Classical music that will wonder how such treasure is reserved for the one-percenters (ie--wealthy).

Original to the core---there has never been a film remotely like this one, and I find it incredible how so many smcl users panned it here. Is this the SF Bay Area...or Modesto????

I digress...the plot IS outlandish, but I declare that this movie is more entertaining and clever than 75% of the movies in our wonderful San Mateo County Library System....a system I ADORE.

Threw in the towel after fifteen minutes. Unwatchable.

Could have been a great movie, the idea was interesting but poor directing and poor acting...

Incredulous plot from the start of the concert. about 25 minutes into the film.
Even the music was abominated by all the chattering between the pianist and his antagonist.

Bit of fun, this. Elijah Wood plays a concert pianist with debilitating stage fright who is returning to the stage. Written in red on his score are the words "play one wrong note and you die."

We spend the length of the concert watching all kinds of insanity go on while wondering precisely when the wife or the performer are going to be shot. Nicely tense at most points but some of the utter insanity gets in the way but what's a B horror film without a bit of insanity?

I did enjoy John Cusack a lot as the menacing voice in the earpiece and I think he had a nice bit of fun himself too.

Conductor: Let me tell you something about the piano that Tom is playing. This customized Imperial Boesenndorfer with eight full octaves
belonged to Patrick himself. This is the first time this piano has been on a stage anywhere. Sadly, we don't get to keep it. Tonight when we're finished, this piano is on an 11 PM plane to Switzerland, which is probably not what the board of directors thought I meant when I assured them that tonight they
would see this instrument take flight.
