Peacock (V) release date April 20 2010 studio Lionsgate director Michael Lander writer Ryan Roy, Michael Lander starring Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, Keith Carradine, Graham Beckel trailer 1 Trailer #1 Official Score: Average User Rating: ADD A USER REVIEW 3 comments Posted By MattSlash on April 26, 2010 @ 4:31 am Log in to Reply ★★★☆☆ This was quite a strange, intriguing, disturbing and sad character study about a man with a split personality disorder after his abusive mother passes away and gets worse after a train crashes in on his secret. I thought Cillian Murphy did an fantastic, oscar worthy performance as the damaged individual with the disorder as well as a solid supporting cast but this is definitely his movie. At first I thought that the town was going to figure it out that he is living two lives as a man and a woman but he effortlessly fools them and bewitches them and I’m just baffled that they could figure it out. As the film goes along it gets more and more complexed and you soon find both of his different personalities plotting against each other witch was a crazy and bizarre plot turn that I really didn’t expect to happen but it was very interesting and kept me glued to the screen in its mystery. The one thing that kept me from giving it an higher rating was the lousy and anticlimatic ending which pretty much made the viewing pointless and it made me made and disappointed. Overall it wasn’t awful but it really needed a better ending but definitely worth renting for Cillian Murphy’s brave performance, other than that it’s really not a must see. More of a 2.5 out of 5 stars.

The movie is interesting but very boring.I can not recommend this movie to anyone unless I try to make someone sleep. And definitely not a horror movie!!!
