When you mix some good ideas with bad ideas
31 May 2016 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Simply it was not the role for Chris Evans. The actor really has never established completely to the romantic movies, and proof of it is the final scene of this movie, the dialogue between Evans and Monaghan could have been more romantically convincing.

" Playing It Cool " is not a bad movie but it definitively could have been way better. Probably another cast assemble or to avoid leaving unfinished parts in the story.

The film is predictable, there will be times when you will be anxious for what will happen, and some other times you will feel boredom and impatience.

The perfect movie for a curious audience who really don't have nothing to do but watch a new movie with any type of expectations.
