I mostly value the IMDb-Rating for being pretty precise, but this time it's totally off track. Why it has been voted 1/10 so many times is beyond me. There was something to the story though that made me watch it nonetheless (usually I won't touch anything below 6/10) but with VERY little expectations though. Luckily I trusted my guts.
Based on what I've read before watching I kinda expected the usual torture-flick. And it starts exactly like that. Bah! Been there, done that! A thousand times! The cover and the title ("Yes/No, You lie, you die!") adds well to that. But there's something different...something that keeps your interest...
Sure, it's low budget. But who cares? I've seen enough flicks with tens of millions of budget but without any soul or even a nice plot.
The acting is absolutely OK, the characters are convincing, the plot is interesting, and the film keeps it tension until the end. And it even leaves you room for thinking afterward. What more does one want? If you like a film where an interesting/unconventional premise/theory is brutally put to life, go and see this flick!
So if you're expecting some nice gore/torture/blood/nudes you should probably avoid this film. If you're open to a pretty neat concept/idea you should watch it. I'd categorize it as thriller/drama/romance and as that it's a solid 7/10. Really worth watching. Could have used some polishing here and there, but nothing show stopping.
