Goofs

Silver reveals to the TV host he knew it was a spoon she was holding because its handle was sticking out from her pocket earlier, not because he is psychic. However, if he were blind he wouldn't have been able to have seen this.

SPOILER: This may be incorrectly regarded as a goof if it is a very early tell that he is not actually blind, a significant plot twist not otherwise revealed until the very end of the film. See more »

Don't perservere!
23 January 2015 | by Bea TSee all my reviews

This was the worst film i have seen in a long time! None of the characters are relatable, the focus of the storyline is unbelievable and uninterestingly developed. The film Goes off on tangents that make no sense, had characters that serve no purpose and an ending that completely discredits it's whole premise! Considering the Well respected actors, i stuck it out hoping it would get better, but it doesn't! On top of this, even these respected actors can do nothing to make this film look good, in fact this film and its storyline make them look like B grade actors in a C grade film. Please, don't waste your time. It Will be nothing but wasted.
