1 hr 14 minutes of my life I will never get back
2 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Horrible movie. No story line. Nothing happens. Do not waste your $. Waited and waited but nothing suspenseful happened. Very slow paced. Almost fell asleep several times. I didn't expect much from it but was sadly disappointed. Very low budget. Gang references were not relevant at all. Minimal violence. Trailer made it out like something was going to happen to make it worth watching. They want me to add more info for the review but i don't anything to say due to absolutely nothing happening in the movie worth referencing. Im not sure why i have to write ten lines to give a review. I wish someone would have posted how terrible this was.
