For movie buffs it's predictable and I personally didn't find it all that enjoyable
Like most trailers when I saw the trailer to this and was expecting a straightforward erotic thriller with some schemes here and there. But that wasn't entirely the case, in fact the movie felt a bit drawn out and dull sometimes. I am not sure if they tried to go in a artistic direction with this movie, but the combination of those elements didn't seem to work that well. In fact the movie felt slightly dated with the direction and all. This movie will also leave some casual viewers slightly confused and not really in a good way either. Like what the heck is going on? And how did it get to that point? And stuff like that. If there was some suspense it would have made the movie better but there is almost no suspense. The plot isn't anything original, it's about a woman who got mixed up with some bad people and is trying to escape her past but her past catches up to her. And there is some twist than and there. The thing is the movie isn't really entertaining or grabs the attention or interest. You just go with it until it's over. Twist and turns isn't that great but when it comes to the twist the title says it all. It's cool when a movie lets the audience participate and use there brains to figure out what is going on, but that just wasn't any fun with this. There is easy to spot flaws in the plot and somethings are just not explained and not in a good way either. Overall I just didn't enjoy this movie, maybe some audience may like this style and direction but I personally didn't all that much. It isn't a terrible movie but I just didn't find it enjoyable.
