User Reviews

Pretty good until the last 10 minutes.
20 October 2019 | by safsurferSee all my reviews

I don't want to spoil anything so I won't go into detail, but this film was going along pretty well, with enough mystery, drama, character development, redemption, acceptance, relationship, family, love, etc, etc....very interesting concept and held my attention throughout trying to figure things out and what exactly happened. There were a few ways this could go and the film maker did a good job to showcase those avenues to keep things interesting and mysterious and leave plenty of room for a twist and surprise ending. Well the surprise was they basically ruined it all in the last 10 minutes using that old time tested and overused method of suspense, which frankly bugs the heck out of me, which is having characters make implausible decisions and do things that no normal, rational or even irrational person would do. The decisions and actions made by several characters in the ending scenes were just so implausible that I docked 1 star, being generous too. So this gets just a 6, watchable, but I believe it could have garnered 7, a fair movie, easily with just a little better writing when they wrapped things up.
