Far from good
27 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

There are so many things in this movie that are unbelievable but that is besides the point! The relationship between Steven and Anthony is seriously disturbing however, I applaud the attempt to bring to light the fact that abuse in gay relationships exists. Even with this however, there are serious development flaws in these two characters and the acting leaves much to be desired. Anthony's Character is very timid and shy but some of his actions don't make sense considering he is painted from the beginning as being so introverted - like picking up random men. Steven's character is abusive but nothing about him is intimidating, threatening or even remotely scary - yes, he is a bitchy little queen but that doesn't make an audience believe that this guy could give his boyfriend a black eye or bash his head on a coffee table!

Gavin is the only saving grace in this film! This kid's character is believable and the actor plays the role well!

And the crazy time-line thing - only distracts the audience.
