It's a thriller for Christ sake not Macbeth!
8 June 2019 | by catastropehamSee all my reviews

This movie has the most essential features for a thriller. 1. Top down cinematography inline with the lead 's character 2. Parallel unfolding 3. A father/cop who's different from normal ppl 4. Unexpected twist and concealed motive It's more than enough for a thriller. I agree actors are new and director is new but still its a good thriller
