Missing
16 June 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The one major problem I see in this movie, is that when it starts to get ugly, there is a redeeming point or vantage point missing. It's just too much in one direction without any sound mind. It would have been good, if someone would at least "say something". But that is also where and why the movie can be devastating.

Of course the movie touches two very hot topics, that do concern the youth from today (or back then). The main actor is really good too. There won't be an easy explanation of course and you shouldn't expect that from this movie. But his support characters are weak (in character and as actors too). Not an easy watch, especially from one point forward, but also with some some major flaws too.
