A Black Rock to remember
19 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Great actresses, but a very weak script. Maybe the script sounded good, I can't say, but the end product isn't good at all, which is a shame. Cardboard characters with "problems" and issues that are apparent from the first minute. Which might leave the viewer wondering why and how this could come this far.

It tries to defend it's positions on the issues at hand, but the movie never really succeeds. And don't get me started on that incredible (in all the wrong senses) ending! The something goes wrong scenario isn't new either, so you might not care about the believability of it all. If you care just a little though ... Well, you've been warned. A shame, but logic never entered in this ...
