This movie had potential, but this potential was murdered by the curse of incoherence, such as countless other potentials in countless other movies.
The story starts out well, and then you wait for something to happen, and you wait some more, but nothing really happens. At the end, your brain tells you that things make sense, but they really don't, the ending would be suitable for another movie.
The acting is below average, the lead actress is cold and distant, which makes it hard to identify with her. The "villain" is weak and unconvincing, and Tom Arnold, well, i have no idea what he's doing in this movie taking this role.
The directing is promising, maybe if the director makes another attempt with a better script, he would probably avoid falling for the curse of incoherence. I don't recommend this film to anyone, unless they want to study it as an example of faulty filmmaking.
