Not really worth it.
I found this movie adequately engaging for its first act. I liked its main character and it sort of had a cool premise.
It really runs out of ideas after that point though. I'm not sure what this movie wants to be. What the core points of conflict are I'm still not sure. I still struggle to believe no one recognized him as the ruse gets really over used and the story really depends on people acting in very specific ways.
A bit of a mess but not a hateable one.
