Worth a watch
1 November 2017 | by screechy_jimSee all my reviews

Reviewing a film in 2017 for a movie released 2014 is something I rarely do so I'll make this quick. The listed IMDb review status is 5.9 at the time of writing and this is a pretty accurate score in my opinion.

Its a good film, the acting direction cast screen play is all great and its an enjoyable watch. The plot is good and there are good developments as the movie progresses, but unfortunately some lazy writing really spoils what could have been an 8/10 score. By this I mean there are simply too many occasions where the plot is advanced through implausible and unbelievable situations. You tend to see this more in Movies written by second rate screen writers who don't quite have the ability to flesh out a plot properly, or in cases where deadlines or costs are tight, and unfortunate measures have to be employed to bring things into line. This can work in some cases, but not when the progression of the plot is essential to the essence of the movie as it is here.

All in all, it's still not a bad film, but I think the rating is a realistic one.
