Like... They got a budget reduction while filming or something
5 August 2018 | by educallejeroSee all my reviews

So. They set up the characters really well. Super engaging scenes that makes you learn about all of them. They open a ton of threads about all of them in subtle, natural ways, plus relationships between some of them...

And then all ends in a few sequences in a non-climax. I honestly believe they thought they could film for more time in a two hour film, they were noticed that wasn't going to be the case, and rewrote the end so they could at least sell the movie.

Having said that, the acting and script of the good parts (2/3) of the movie was so good that I couldn't give this movie less than a six...
