I couldn't get through it....
12 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I knew after five minutes that this was a dark dramedy and not a thriller. I also found the child's high-pitched voice annoying. I was hoping this would be something along the lines of Unbreakable, but I was not even able to get through it. The boy's first few "lives" are unraveled in an almost comedic way, in the first five minutes. Enter the doctor who gives lectures and has a best-selling book. At this point, I was losing interest. I don't know how this ended, nor do I care. The sound editing was the worst, too - make sure you have all background noise turned off. This had some good reviews, so I was very disappointed. To each his own. Maybe you will like it.
