Okay, I see that you're... a writer from... Phoenix, Montana. You've come here to be inspired by the English countryside and to get away from the hustle and bustle of your life in the U.S. of A.
Um... not at all. No.

The Boy (2016) was for the first 1 hour a very simple and smooth rolling thriller film, though once it hit the last almost 18 minutes of the film the instant feeling of "what the f did they do to this film" came over us. The ending of the film was the death of the movie, the acting, the story, everything just went to crap. The Boy (2016) had a simple thriller vibe going on, it wasn't great but it wasn't bad either then all of a sudden they through in the "let's hurry and destroy a movie" vibe and well the end.
If you watch The Boy (2016), watch your clock and once it hits 1 hour turn the film off to leave with a feeling that you watched something fairly done, the ending made us wish we'd never have watch it.
