Sorry, but I don't buy in to this "make up your own ending" when it comes to story telling. And after all, isn't that what a movie is? I could list a few redeeming qualities, but even if there is some good acting, or occasional glimpses of an actual story, it is all worthless if there's no plot. What this movie tries to pass off as a plot is nothing more than a partial rip off of a real life event, told with new characters. It's a story we already know. For that to be entertaining, you have to draw the viewer in to the story. Instead, we're only given glimpses here and there of past and present, and it's up to us - the viewers - to write the rest of the film in our heads. How can one score a half finished movie? You can't. Thus the ONE.
