Good movie if you go in with little expectation

(This part has nothing to do with the movie. See next paragraph.) I was getting irritated with all the bad reviews. These reviews were done as poorly as they tried to describe the movie as being. When writing a review the goal isn't to belittle the movie and try to come up with 'clever' ways to speak badly about the people and their career choices as actors. You basically are a bully and not a critic at that point, so stop it.

(Amber Alert) I went into this movie not expecting much and came out much happier than most by doing so. It is a low budget movie with its share of flubs. But it is not a 'pathetic' and 'horrible waste of time'. The story is simple yet captivating. The acting tends to lack in a lot of areas but is good at certain points. If you can get past the acting and keep yourself in the movie the story has a good build. People like to believe they would have done things differently, but it's a movie so if you can accept that then their actions in the film won't bother you. The only thing that genuinely bothered me was the police' lack of response and at some points their concern. In the end it was a decent movie. And it's just a movie so if you like it, good. If you don't like it then just leave it at that and don't feel like it is your civic duty to really ream these actors because in the end it makes you no better than a Starbucks customer.
