User Reviews

 
A good one time film!
5 November 2017 | by rebeccalucySee all my reviews

A really good premise but could be better with certain tweaks and changes. I enjoyed the idea of the game as it seems really similar to some of the stuff people do online in real life. It was fun to see how far some people would go to win.

Some of the cinematography and lighting was really good. I really loved the effect used on the film poster! Certain scenes were quite tense and you can almost imagine what you might do in that situation. Emma Roberts did a good job in her role.

The message at the end was kinda silly and tacked on, it needed working on. Songs often ruin certain scenes, the soundtrack needs working on or not be as prominent in the film. Overall a good film worth watching at least once.
