Poor editing, great plot
31 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this movie deserves a much better production. Many scenes were poorly cut off, leaving you asking what happened, especially the ending. I was very disappointed with how poor that last scene was cut and left up to the viewer's imagination. I can understand the technical shortcomings of poor illumination or poor sound in some scenes, or poorly filmed scenes due to low budget, but when you choose to cut a scene short or coordinate it poorly, that has nothing to do with budget.

The acting was great, and the storyline was excellent. They just needed to present it better by adding missing scenes, better closeups and angles. Perhaps the director thought the scenes were clear but instead he left the audience hanging in the air with many scenes that seemed unfinished and some with rough edges.

The editing was not very good either. Some scenes didn't make sense how they were put together and demonstrates lack of experience in filmmaking. And that editing style of providing bits and pieces of the past (when characters were younger) and spread them across the entire movie is very confusing especially when the characters look exactly the same. In some cases, you can get away with this editing style, but it has to be properly done. In this case, it caused a sketchy and awkward scene flow. In some cases, the scenes were irrelevant and could've been left out of the movie altogether.

The transitions between scenes was very amateur. They could've been more creative and finish scenes better. It got 5 stars out of 10 due to it being an excellent story besides all the technical problems.
