"A tense, intelligent, superbly performed tour de force by two great actors from two generations."
Jeffrey Lyons, NBC's Reel Talk.
Directed by critically acclaimed director Kenneth Branagh, Jude Law and two-time Oscar winner Michael Caine (Best Supporting Actor, Hannah and Her Sisters; Best Supporting Actor, The Cider House Rules) join forces in this sharp-witted, modern adaptation of the 1972 classic, Sleuth.
Locked in a high-tech English manor, bound in a deadly duel of wits, Andrew Wyke (Caine) and Milo Tindle (Law) come together as English gentlemen to discuss the matter of Wyke's wife, the woman both men are sleeping with. But as wit becomes wicked and clever becomes cutthroat, Wyke and Tindle's game of one-upmanship spirals out of control in an escalating chess match that can have only one outcome: murder. -- (C) Sony Pictures Classics, 2007, UK/USA.

"Wickedly entertaining! A shrewdly entertaining tour de force."

"Kenneth Branagh's masterful cat and mouse thriller is a stylish, hypnotic and flawlessly acted masterpiece. A deliciously sardonic and witty screenplay by Harold Pinter. Caine and Law are at the peak of their game in this dazzling film."
