Def. Not Logan
6 August 2013 | by geny82See all my reviews

To be honest, the only reason I wanted to watch this movie is because I long for the days of Logan and Veronica. It seems like everything Jason Dohring does, soon ends. That being said, the character of Elliot is nothing like Logan, but the movie is still watchable nonetheless. It's a mystery movie with real mystery. As soon as you think you know "who done it," some new clue or misdirection pops up and throws you off. I was half expecting poor production quality, muffled sounds, all in all a cheap looking movie. Not so. It didn't have a large theatrical release, or if it did I missed it, but you would never know. Not to mention all the awards it won at film festivals. It's a good high quality movie, which you can watch for free right now on HULU
