Ripley worms his way into the idyllic lives of Dickie and his girlfriend (Paltrow), plunging into a daring scheme of duplicity, lies and murder.

I paid $9.99 for this movie and it won't play. It's stuck at 26 seconds. I have a Galaxy S5, so it's not my phone. My rating will change once I'm able to watch what I paid for.

Matt Damon is a brilliant actor. This movie has an amazing cast, great actors all. The story builds the tension faster and faster, with twists and turns. I was completely drawn in till the last second of the story.
