Went in with low expectations and was still sorely disappointed!
Destiny captured the beauty of Jamaica impeccably. That said, the story was mediocre at best. It was poorly edited, poorly plotted, poorly acted (with the exception of a few in the supporting cast), and poorly executed. The director seemed to have a fairly decent budget because the production quality was reasonable, despite this it somehow managed to be one of the least enjoyable Jamaican movies I have ever watched.
Save for a few comedic moments which spanned perhaps 1/10th or less of the movie, it had very little else going for it. I didn't care about the lead characters because they were deplorable actors who lacked a believable emotional range with a trite story-line. There were several inconsistencies in the plot as well which were glaring and eye- rolling inducing. Overall not worth the time spent watching at the cinema. While some of the patrons seemed to enjoy it this would have been better served as a small scale stage play (roots play as we call them), anything beyond that is overreaching.
