fresh and well written, in a word: excellent
15 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I rarely write film reviews but this one really deserved a positive review.

I love originality and this film is truly original. It has a fresh feel and it is well written. I had no idea that some of the actors weren't professional. Perhaps that is what gives this film its edge.

I don't think I can do it much more justice than reviewer "larry-411" did. He really nailed it.

All I can say is watch it, you wont regret it.

I must add more lines according to IMDb requirements, so let me say this: Always look at the last reviews of a film. IMDb often hides bad reviews at the end. I think they are getting kickbacks to put good studio written reviews up front to get people to watch their films. I have seen this more times than not. So don't be fooled.
