Initially going in to see this movie I was expecting something completely different. Rather than the stereotypical horror movie, "The Number 23" was more of a build up suspense film, leaving you anxious and troubled in your seat waiting to uncover the truth behind this book. In the movie the main character Jim Carrey had become so obsessed with the book also called "The Number 23", that throughout the course of the story he had become so convinced that it was based off his life due to the fact of the resemblences between him and the main character in the story known as Fingerling. Not only was he discovering the similarities between him and the character but he was discovering that the root of all this madness was the number 23. That's what put the extra twist to the movie. But I have to say that I found my self very confused and lost throughout the movie until the end when everything was unveiled. I wasn't very happy with the end, and I don't want to spoil it for those who have not seen it yet, but let's just say it was one of those endings that didn't fit the movie. And the worst part is that we never figured out the significance or the meaning of this number 23! Why 23, as the number of his obsession? What did it mean? That was really frusterating not to have those questions answered. But all and all it was an okay movie and it was nice to see Jim Carrey stray away from his usual comedic and silly acts and see him play a more serious role.
