Least thrilling thriller ever
This was the most predictable, maudlin, poorly written and constructed film I have seen in years! It has all the formulaic idiocy of a 1980s Bochco production, complete with haphazard and ridiculous shoot 'em up scenes where the "bad guys" are literally shooting their guns in the air like Pancho Villa in a '30s western, but without any of the humor or sense of fun, combined with the angst and self-absorption of an irritating self-absorbed and self-pitying teenager. In fact, I can't believe the director wasn't actually a teenage girl. There's no other way to explain such a pile of fatuous wallowing!
The only aspect that was reasonably well done is the acting, but nothing could make this assemblage of unlikable characters, struggling under leaden direction and absurd script, remotely enjoyable. Hard pass.
