This movie HAD potential but lost the plot.

YEAR OF THE COMET

What a terrible shame this movie turned out so bad. Within the first five minutes of watching this film I wanted to see MORE. YES, I was excited. Then after five more minutes into this drama/thriller, I'm tearing my hair out. What was with the terrible attempts at trying to add some humour?? The bottle of wine was worth a LOT of money. Why the messing around?? The guy was left hanging on the side of a building for far too long. And the silly Greek guy at the airport, blah blah blah. I'm surprised it didn't become a MUSICAL!! This film had the potential to be good...very good!!.. only to be spoiled by the failed humour and ridiculous ending. The only saver was the beautiful Scottish scenery. If you value your spare time, then don't waste your time on this one!! 2.5/10
