Not for everyone, but it's most likely going to be a cult classic
22 September 2014 | by hashtagtechnobabbleSee all my reviews

A lot of people will hate this film, but those who like it will absolutely love it. Katie Cassidy completely reinvents herself playing Suki, a girl with an extreme case of dissociative disorder. She is extremely convincing and personally gives what I consider the best performance of any actress I've seen this year. The supporting characters, besides Eliza dushku as a criminal psychologist, all give great performances as well.

This is based on a graphic novel of the same name. Usually, film adaptations of literature take tons of liberty's and end up being som thing completely different than the the literature they're based on. This is the exception. Everything from the look of the halfway house to what happens to the machine is exactly the same as the graphic novel, and I do mean everything. Probably 70% of the lines are taken directly from the graphic novel word for word. The only exception is the americanization of the characters and the two detective characters.

A lot of viewers will hate this. Those of us who like it will fall in love with this movie almost instantly. It oozes cool and has cult classic written all over it.
