Doesn't know what movie it's trying to be
14 March 2013 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

This movie is a utter piece of crap. I sometimes give these not well known movies a try and it sometimes turn out good. But this one is the complete opposite of that. In fact it made me angry knowing the fact that I kept thinking it was going to get better, when it's the complete opposite. And invested my time to watch the most boring movie with a script that doesn't know which direction to go. Yeah, some people say this about certain movies. But this one really didn't know which direction to go and seemed like the makers of this crap of a movie just made stuff up as they went along. The acting is bad, it isn't awful but bad. Val Kilmer is in this one as the sheriff and oh how much he has fallen. This one is his mark as a fallen actor. I don't even want to get started with the plot for this one since it's going to give me a headache. And not because the story is complicated but it just ticks me off just thinking about it. The title of this movie is "Riddle" but there isn't even a single puzzle or riddle solving in this. It's just some towns name that is it. Avoid this movie like the plague.
