Goofs

In the very last scene of the movie, when Mia is leaving the Northwood State prison, a very clear sign on the wall (on the left side) is saying "SHOP AND PARK". It doesn't make any sense in a prison parking lot. See more »

I Don't Get Why This is Only a 5
11 March 2012 | by viridelSee all my reviews

Is it an epic masterpiece? No. Is it well and appropriately written? Yes. Is it well acted? Absolutely.

OK, some of the back-story is left a little lacking in flashbacks that are extremely short and for the most part lacking in development. But the present is well thought out, follows a natural character progression, and there aren't any unnecessary character trait flips to create artificial drama. The ending is appropriate for the progression of the story. Even the audio is perfectly developed.

Basically, this hits the mark on every mark except special effects (which would feel completely tacked on and unnecessary anyway). I don't get why there are so many poor reviews for something very solid!
