... Too pretentious to be good.... A copy of styles from other movies... I was very excited to see this movie, It Looked like a fresh new film with lots going on, but in the end, i was very disappointed with it. The plot is OK, but it looks like a compilation of a lot of better movies than this one. At least the actors are good.
If it only didn't try to look cool, it would be fine.
Feels like a lost opportunity to do a good movie... Seriously, I think the director try to put all his background of motion graphics , music videos and publicity in one movie.... In the end , if you want a good movie skip this one...
