Does somethings well, others not so much however its ok movie overall.
Based off the premise and cast of the movie I thought to myself why not give it a watch. Upon conclusion of the movie. I was both impressed and dissapointed.
First the movie had a indentity crisis. It diddn't know if it wanted to be a horror, thriller, action, drama, or even comedy at times. It ended up detracting me from the movie because at times wasn't sure when to laugh, be scared, or intrigued. Second the film went with a weird direction of showing flashback on flashback on flashback. After awhile it was almost giving me headache watching so many. Lastly up to the middle-end the movie was very draggy and boring. I contemplated even turning it off at times but was glad I hung around.
With all that said there were quite few pros. The visuals were excellent for low budget film and it made you feel very engaged like you can almost feel what was going on. The acting from all parties was excellent and entertaining. Also the twist-turns towards the end without giving anything away were amazing and real reason I gave this movie a 6. Without the last half hour this film would easily got only couple stars.
Overall I would say give this one a watch if you're patient viewer. If not I would recommend avoiding this film.
