Has anyone seen this yet? I caught it over this past weekend.

It's a quality production, with fine camera work, good settings, etc. The excellent acting by Vera Farmiga, Peter Sarsgaard, and the girl who plays the title character (didn't get her name) lifts the film above the ordinary. Still, these positive elements can't hide the fact that this is a really tired cliche of a story: the bad seed whose deadly intentions wreck the lives of well-meaning, innocent people. Aside from one twist in the plot, there really aren't any surprises; there's just lots of bloodshed and menace. We've seen it before, too many times.
