good ideas and OK acting but poorly execution by director and horrible editing
8 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Poor editing/directing, muddled scenes that go nowhere, and a long drawn out plot that doesn't really go anywhere by the end of the story ruined what could otherwise have been a good taut thriller with otherwise decent actors trying to do their best.

The actors saved it from being absolutely horrible.

It took far too long to establish the beginning of the plot and the middle part of the film was muddled and incoherent.

The last third of the film was OK, but the film suffers from an incomplete ending.

This strikes me as a TV movie of the week that suffered from either a limited budget or too short of a production period.
