Dreadful
16 May 2014 | by arfdawg-1See all my reviews

This movie is a horrible waste of time.

It's slow as molasses.

It's directed like a soft core porn film you'd see after hours on Cinemax. And I don't mean that it has abundant nudity. It just has that feel.

The settings are opulent. The main woman is always dressed to the nines. And everyone is a poseur.

The problem with the film is it goes no where. There is not real plot development. The characters are thinly drawn.

You get very bored very early on.

Not worth it.
