Zero Chemistry
4 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this film, but I saw no chemistry between the lead characters at all.

The character of Jackie exhibited no real emotional response to her professor, and the professor was totally casual throughout the film. I expected sparks to fly. You have a perfect setup, a great premise for the film with lots of genuine opportunity for conflict. Instead, it was as exciting as a paint by numbers picture. I really was disappointed that there was no real passion exhibited between any of the characters. Even the fights were subdued and drab.

As for the sex, if you are going to imply the sex, rather than show it(which is alright with me), at least make it implied passion.

The characters looked like they were just going through the motions.
