Number 29 Bus
6 December 2015 | by VanBooterSee all my reviews

If asked can I compare this film to anything I would say it's like waiting for the No29 bus. You know it's due but for some reason no matter how long you wait it never arrives.

I have just finished watching Pleasure Island and not long into the film I virtually knew how this was going to pan out.

There is nothing which will keep you guessing, I was hoping for a possible twist and one not so obvious but no it never happened.

The actors, well no one really stood out, Gina Bramhill did well with her part, but the rest were mediocre well all accept one.

Ian Sharp oh my lordy lord a definition of wooded acting if ever there was one, character development "Closed Gone to Lunch". He's probably fine given the right direction and part but he played it like he didn't want to be there for instance at the end..... well you will see when and if you can last that long.

If I was to give you a very brief outline of the film and I mean very brief it would spoil it for you, so best thing you can do is read nothing beforehand and maybe take a crossword puzzle along with you to whisk away the minutes.
