Poor on every level............
19 May 2019 | by hampersnow-28905See all my reviews

What happens when you take an over-wrought, totally unbelievable plot, mix it with amateurish dialogue and decide to hire actors who look like models but have zero acting talent ? You get this cheesy drama that comes across as a bad TV movie. It is nicely shot, and all the lead actors are gorgeous, but not for one second do you believe them in their characters. Brenton Thwaites looks way too young for his role and Ben Robson as his brother is awful. Everything about this movie comes across as phony and it is not one of those "so bad it's good" movies" it's just BAD. You could turn the sound off just to watch very pretty people wander around on screen and this would be less painful to watch.
