Good story, abrupt ending
23 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed watching this film all the way through until the end.

This is not a comedy. That must be made clear and I hope the film is not marketed as a comedy because it will receive a lot of low ratings by people expecting The Hangover (2009) when in reality this movie has more in common with The Last Supper (1995). There is plenty of humour but it comes about organically through ordinary (interesting) conversations.

I thought the film ended far too soon. It truly felt like half an hour was missing and that they had wasted Greg Grunberg's character because he was ultimately of no importance. I was expecting a huge investigation and perhaps some consequences but instead, the focus of the film was entirely on the benefits of murder.

I would give this 6.4/10 and have decided to round up due to the fact that there is some truly great writing here, terrific acting and I laughed out loud at least three or four times. Had the ending been more spectacular or of any consequence at all, I would have given it 8/10.

As it stands, great effort and well worth watching.

7/10
