Slow paced and lack lustre
7 September 2018 | by mistervillersSee all my reviews

This had such promise, however most of that was imposed by the 6.7 rating it was enjoying on IMDB. Sadly I realised this was from less than 80 reviews AFTER I had watched it. The story starts well, it's an interesting set up that many can empathise with. However it ends as a drawn out cliche that lacks any thought or adventure. Avoid this straight to DVD future non classic!
