Dark Side of the book
27 September 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

I haven't read the novel this is based on, but judging from what I saw in this movie, it should be pretty good. Moritz Bleibtreu is not the only one who is glad that thrillers are made. It's tough because of the expectations and the cinemas not getting the revenue getting anything back (never mind the distributors or investors).

This gets pretty dark and you get kind of in the head of our main character and how he is feeling. It's about a dark side that gets awakened, which is never a good thing of course. The movie does suggest a lot of things and the ending may seem a bit far stretched, but overall it does work ...
