The 1st hour is Super boring. Terrible dialogue. Once India Eisley takes it all off the movie gets better but never gets good.
25 June 2019 | by tkaine3See all my reviews

"Adolescence" (4/10) = Regret 🌠🌠🌠🌠 After 5 mins. this movie starts with a haphazard age progression of a young kid who turns into a powder face senior in high school he looks nothing like played by Mickey River. Him and his best friend played by ex rapper lil Romeo are the bizarre odd couple who bumble there way around town seeking fun through loitering stores, getting high and partys subsequently meeting his love interest played by India Eisley.

This film does have a realistic message and the storyline reveals that through out but the movie is just boring a few times it starts to look as though it will pick up and after 5 mins of an interesting scenario the tires get gashed and it's flat again. Bad pacing with an hour of wasted time at the beginning could've atleast made this film worth watching or remembering, But nothing happens dramatic enough to make it a memorable movie. Even though the end is understandable and somewhat practical in todays world we live in it doesn't progress towards that enough and abruptly ends. On the brightside I was delighted when the screen went black and the credits were flashed because I was happy it was finally over.
