Painful
15 April 2014 | by bleu_eagle_tsSee all my reviews

Although visually interesting the slow pace and lack of any content made me scout for the exits available in the movie theater after the first 20 minutes. The scenes were shot nicely and the composition was well thought out, but nothing happened.. at all. After an elaborate plan (since it meant I had to wake up 3 sleeping viewers that stood on my way to the exit) I left 20 minutes later. I couldn't take it anymore and left the cinema (for the first time ever) before the movie ended (and so did at least 10 other people during the 40 minutes I was there). Maybe it became good after I left, I'll never know, but I honestly have little faith in it.
