Don't Believe the Ratings
1 October 2017 | by kvatterSee all my reviews

I can only surmise that the entire cast, crew and family members involved with this film were the 40 votes of 10 stars because I defy anyone to get through more than 30 minutes of this film without reaching for the off button on the TV. The dialogue is unrealistic, forced and delivered in a stilted manner. The direction is lacking any creativity. The entire movie consists of two shots of characters delivering that stiff dialogue interspersed with extreme close-ups, sometimes at odd unflattering angles. Close-up, two-shot, close-up, two-shot...all flatly lit. Nary an interesting visual to be found. You'll have the entire story figured out in about 10 minutes. Really. Don't believe the ratings. Even if all other movies suddenly vanished from the earth, this would still not be a 10...or a 5.
