Lousy writing...
26 August 2019 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

Great cinematography, decent directing, but a lousy convoluted screenplay with plot, technical and editing issues. The 110 min run-time felt much longer with the slow and dragged out pacing. Aside from Matt Smith, the rest of the casting was primarily terrible, especially the main girls who where unconvincing and seemed like amateur actors. Decent premise for a story, but sadly it was poorly executed. A 7/10 from me.
