Job Well Done.
27 October 2011 | by ThisIsolatedRoomSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. It was slow at times but I must say David Lyons 'Eli' did an amazing job at keeping me very interested. It was an interesting script and it kept me asking questions but the end was satisfying. The message behind the movie was strong and I would defiantly watch it again. :)

Kudos to the director, Interesting storyline, Amazing acting performances, costumes and make-up were a win and all in all a job well done!

I would defiantly recommend seeing it if you enjoy movies with more meaning than action.
