With a little more effort and touch ups, it could have been good
5 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

The film had a decent plot structure and decent story about it but the problem was that it had too much of an amateur feel. Had it been with a bigger budget and the story put more effort to it, it could have been far better. Many scenes were just boring and extended. It starts off great with an odd introduction and I somewhat like what the director was going for. This immediately made people want to watch till the end to see how it all happened. Another thing is that the director tried with the art and indie feel of it with its non-linear storyline. The problem is that it isn't told right and with a few more effort and work put into it, it could have been better. It also kind of spoils who the guy is that got Nick cannon's character in the beginning of the scene. You can tell because the character who does this never changes clothing throughout the film. Too much was given.

The characters weren't likable either which made the film less watchable. Honeslty had they put more thought into that, it could have been good. The acting was decent for what it was supposed to be but not great. I don't think it'd watch this again as it's not as interesting now knowing what happens. Im sure they have the intro scene uploaded on youtube, just watch that.
