Inexcusable
29 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful. The acting is stilted, the screenplay seems to have been put together randomly with no continuity, the directing done by someone who has no concept for how to string together a plot.

The characters are undeveloped, their motivations are unclear and seem to change from scene to scene and their actions are either under- or over-stated.

It almost seems as though there were originally two different story lines and something went wrong in the cutting-room; both films seem to have been mixed together resulting in a movie that you'd have to be as nuts as we're supposed to believe the lead character is supposed to be in order to make any sense of it.

Excuse me for living? Perhaps, but this film shouldn't be excused for existing.
