Quite decent
13 January 2021 | by AbdulxoxoSee all my reviews

Woah firstly I don't agree with the overly positives reviews here and I can't say the negatives reviews are right either. This movie is quite decent. The story may not be the greatest but the execution is good. I like the film's first half, as there's a lot suspense and tension. The cabin scenes will keep you at the edge of your seat but with lots of questions going through your head like "How did she get here", "why do they do that?" Even though there's no character development in the first half, who to root for is pretty clear. But when the flashbacks start and we get to see how the whole thing happen, I started to lose interest. They even go as far as saying the best parts of the film are staged, and that's where I lose complete interest. But I like how the film plays with the viewer's emotions/mind, as the movie progress and everything unravels, you're left feeling kinda daft as everything you've seen is not as it appears to be. The dialogue is neat and fairly grounded. But the characters' decision-making is quite awful, there are lots of places where if they avoid certain things or do certain things, then things would have been easy for them. Another issue is i think this movie is longer than it should have been.

The performances are decent. The cinematography is good with breathtaking camera angles but I don't like the look of the film, it's all smudgy and blurry, it's kind of a turn off. The score contributes a lot as it complements the scenes nicely.

Overall, it's not a perfect movie but it's still a decent thriller flick that thrills!
