Louise: Why's it so hard when the only thing there is you and the rabbit?

Very slow and very boring
13 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Well this was a waste of my time. I don't know why The Keeping Room gets good ratings because this is just a dumb movie. It's extremely slow, with not much going on. It's full of inconsistencies that I won't mention here because it's just not worth of it. The actors are mediocre. I won't cry if I never see them acting again. The story is really boring, i even fell asleep for a couple minutes. Would I watch this one again? Certainly not. I even wrote it down to make sure that I won't make the same mistake again. Don't waste your time on this one because there are plenty of better movies in the same style then this one.
