Slow and boring
19 May 2018 | by veinctorSee all my reviews

Wow I actually forgot the movie and I saw it like 3 days ago.

All I remember was that is slow, it gets nowhere, has a low budget B-movie feel. Nothing good happens and it's all gloomy in a boring way.

It was like a crime drama where a detective goes in places and looks around slowly. Some murders took place but I didnt care about anyone in the film. I thought that it had to be a dream, or that everything was in the protagonists head or something. Nothing smart happens. Unless you count the protagonist's incompetence to do anything right.

Bad movie. I liked seeing Jim Carrey in aserious film for once but it was a bad one.
