Wow This Was Bad
21 October 2014 | by kolanoSee all my reviews

I had been hopeful that this was just getting poor reviews due to the freshmen director, but no this just seems really bad.

I'm generally accepting to plod through a bad movie, but couldn't do so with this and had to stop watching about 30-45min in. Perhaps that means I missed it's twist ending, but I had no interest in sitting through enough of it to make it there.

Acting seemed generally terrible, though I'm less sure that should be blamed on the actors vs the terrible plot/script. The movie was full of clichéd roles/dialog and failed to provide any insight to it's out there premises, such as basketball being "illegal" in any modern US city. Nothing of real interest seemed to be happening, and I couldn't stand to put up with it to reach the end.

I normally don't review things here, but felt it necessary to log in to do so just to lower this movies score, it was that bad and deserves less than the 4.4 it had as of submitting this review.
