Great Film
6 February 2018 | by hunterjpetrickSee all my reviews

This film has quite a bit of dialogue, and although I'm not typically big on films with dialogue, this one gets a huge pass. The lines were well said, the women were beautiful, and Willem Dafoe did an excellent job playing this role, even though it's not the type of character he'd typically play. A friend of mine who's not into genre's like this at all said he was tuned into the last 20 minutes of this film when the plot twist hit. The end of this movie was the best part. Highly recommend.
