Did not care for this movie
18 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Appointment" is confusing (the opening scene has nothing to do with the rest of the movie), slow and boring. I watched this movie four times, the first three times I fell asleep. I finally got through the entire movie the fourth time. After the movie ended I wanted to know one thing: What was that (the movie) about? Like I said, the opening scene (a girl getting snatched out of nowhere by an unseen force--the only interesting part of the movie) has nothing to do with the rest of the movie. The rest of the movie is about a spoiled little girl who gets upset with her father because he cannot make it to one of her "concerts." So she decides to kill him using supernatural powers. At least, that's what I think it's about, but I'm not really sure. As I stated earlier in my post, the movie is confusing and makes absolutely no sense at all.
