Boring!
31 August 2014 | by asserlaser-350-127790See all my reviews

Well, I do not know what to say, I rarely write a review about a movie, but this movie was too boring, acting was great, plot is kinda familiar, directing is disappointing.

My wife and I was trying to fight falling asleep during watching it. It seemed to be a short movie that usually can be directed in 15 minutes, but they asked for a super director that can execute it in 100 minutes, so that was the final result,,, BORING!

I voted 5/10 because the acting was great, and the ending made me smile. I wont spoil it, but I was surprised.

If you want to kill 100 minutes, or need help for sleeping, watch it!
