    "The first time i watched this movie i didn't really pay attention to it so basically i did not understand the entire plot. So the second time, I saw this i was determined to understand it but once again i got lost on the story but at the end of the movie i discovered that i actually understand everything on it. "

    "The ending of this is rather ambiguous that has caused debate to anyone who has watched it because in the final scene Bateman finds out that many of his victims are supposedly still alive showing that his murders might only be his imagination. I even argued with my friends after we watched this"
