Don't waste your time
26 May 2013 | by mr-aquariusSee all my reviews

Simple and straightforward: The end just fell flat. Now, if they had built the plot so that we cared about the main character, that would be fine. But, the filmmakers' inability to build suspense is what completely drowned the whole thing.

In her attempt to find her daughter, the main character relies on the help of a variety of people in the U.S. and Israel. None of the actors were at all engaging, and the only one who actually seemed to be able to portray true emotion was the hotel clerk. He may have been my favorite character. The appearance of all the other characters seemed more random than mysterious.

There have been other comments regarding the inaccuracy of how Israel was portrayed in this film. If the settings and the people of the Middle East were maligned by the filmmakers, then that's an even greater shame upon this cinematic waste of time.

You're better off watching re-runs of your favorite TV show that you've seen ten times already than waste your time on this film.
