21 December 2012 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I gave this three out of ten, and that is being slightly generous. Acting was okay, but it has a feel of indie darkness and is SO slow it slithers about leaving a wet trail through its course. Nothing really happens, I must admit to falling asleep twice through the watching for short periods of time, and the ending is as much a let down as the rest of the movie. It just does not go anywhere, just keeps looping through the same locations and characters for the full boring time period. The acting is okay to be truthful, the filming okay too, just a terrible story, if that is not too strong a word to use. The music is dark and adds to the feel of low budget to the overall production. Save your time and give this one a swerve, the actors themselves are faultless, and may do well in future productions with more entertainment value. Overall to sum up, very disappointing, had the feeling in the first ten minutes to go watch something more enjoyable, but stuck with it as felt it may pick up, plus was basing watching it on two positive reviews here. Interesting that one reviewer hails from Boston, the location of the movie, perhaps that gives more of an appeal to the film, I certainly in all honesty could never recommend it.
