Subtle, But Great! It Is A Hidden Gem.
7 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Is it an original idea? No. But in this day and age how often do we see an original idea. Everything made these days is a remake or a mesh of various films or characters. Maybe I've seen to many movies. But when I watch new movies now, I can't help but trace the plot or situation back to another movie. That being said. I enjoyed watching this movie. I never questioned the characters or there motives. They had purpose, even though it was lunacy. And of course it's not your typical ending, but that's what I loved about it. Who wants to watch the same cookie cutter endings? I'm tired of the norm. This movie made an effort and I was entertained.
