Pros and Cons of "Sweet Virginia"
30 June 2018 | by Vlasios_TzomosSee all my reviews

Pros: Scenario 6/10 (Terse script, plain scenario not complicated, no plot holes but nothing that we haven't see before... not much character analysis, covered by good acting though) Direction 7/10 (Jamie Dagg made a good dark Neo-Noir/Neo Western thriller) Cinematography 7/10 Jon Bernthal 7/10 Christopher Abbott 8/10 (Really convincing as a psycho character... scary convincing!) Cons: Actually I found no important weaknesses in this movie. Nice movie. 7/10 by me.
