Not good
13 December 2012 | by (Louisiana) – See all my reviews

Beware: movie is terrible. This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Not because of the intentions or goals, but because of the plot, transitions, and ending. I tried to have hope throughout, but in the end I was disappointed and very much let down. Yes, the plot is unique and the idea is great... but it was not executed as well as it could have been (saying it nicely). There were attempted plot twists, scandalous situations, and strange interactions... but there was not really anyone to relate to. Do not let a couple hours of your life be spent experiencing this bad movie. This movie could be redone and recreated with a better plot and flow, but this movie isn't making the cut. I give it 2/10 only because their intentions were good and there were some interesting ways to portray some things. BUT, I would not and never recommend this movie.
