From ACADEMY AWARD®-Winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 2008) comes a thrilling, action-packed brain-twister! After a blow to the head during his attempted robbery of a $27 million Goya painting, Simon (James McAvoy, X-Men: First Class), awakens to find that the painting – and his memory – are missing. As the plot twists, reality and dream collide in this non-stop thriller.




  • Kudos to Rosario Dawson, but direction was imperfect

    By Rhythm Oriented
    Wish other American actresses had the moxy to pull of an exposed performance like that. Nice efforts for McAvoy, and company also. Interesting turn from Oscar Winner Danny Boyle, but not quite as crisp direction as other efforts (better known for Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later, 127 Hours). Nonetheless, this made for a great "guys movie night," thanks to Rosario.
  • Love it

    By NeneFabio
    I loved the move a lot. I have never seen one like this.
  • Should have been rated X not R

    By Gigi's #1
    I was truly disappointed. It was great in the beginning & then by the end it became something like an xx rated movie. It truly wasn't necessary, because it was totally believable up until that point! Don't have kids anywhere near this movie!!!
  • the REAL work of art in this movie is Rosario Dawson.

    By Frenchy in LA
    No matter where the story takes you, it will make you think of Inception. Great, story, acting, directing, PHENOMENAL photography, music by Rick Smith of Underworld, BUT….you can't just explain away your entire movie in a voice over narrative. It leaves a greater impression on your audience when you lead them to a a-ha moment...
  • Very complex movie

    By Colognedl
    Or is it complicated? This movie requires your full attention throughout the entire movie. But it has a good plot that does get a little too complicated at the end. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars. You may want (or need) to watch this movie two or three times until all the hidden plots and twists and turns make complete sense. However, it is well acted, well shot and certainly deserves to be seen. Maybe a 5 star after all??
  • Trance

    I'm very sorry to give this movie only 1 star, but after 1 hour, it just stopped working!! I'm very disappointed!!
  • i love you! I hate you! I don't really know you.

    By JL Munk
    starts out slow and builds the story. then there is a escalation of action that leaves you twisting in the wind. lust, love, crime, corruption all twisting, hanging, dangling for the mental spectacle that is trance. Better than your average mental thriller...
  • Laughable

    Worst movie I've seen in a very long time. Good cast, interesting concept, poorly executed. The preview is better than the movie. Save yourself 5 bucks & 1.5 hours of your life.
  • Worth watching, but far from Danny Boyle's best

    By kevin_pc
    I'm a big Danny Boyle fan, and while this isn't a bad movie, it's really far from his best work. There's come clever ideas, and some good themes, but it tries to do way too much in the time and leaves too many plot holes. The characters don't have much real depth and the central premise is fundamentally unbelievable. This makes it a 3 star for me. Worth watching, but it falls short of what it aimed to be. Maybe I should just rewatch Trainspotting again.
  • Exciting
