really disappointing
27 April 2014 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

I was really attracted to this movie due to the cast. I love Crispin Glover, and his role and acting were great. I felt the script was really weak at times, which left the other two stars, Jon Cusack and Robert DeNiro looking pretty pathetic. The chick was smoking hot, but again the acting seemed like acting. No Oscars here.

I also felt the director was building a few moments to crescendo and reveal a shocking truth or twist, but the film was so predictable, all the efforts fell short. The movie dragged on and in the end, predictable.

I did like the location of the motel, a really creepy atmosphere. Good job, location scout.

This movie is watchable, but not something you'll be telling friends about.
