Brad Anderson has made some things that are excellent, some that are merely workmanlike and competent.

This one is excellent.

Solid thriller. I always watch these type of movies and think I am way to asocial to conned this way. Make friends with random strangers? I don't even want to make chit-chat with random strangers.

I feel the same way about me in that situation, but I did feel they set up well that Harrelson's character was a goob so in love with the romantic idea of the trip that he was a prime mark, waiting to happen.
