I defy anyone to watch more than 10 minutes
23 November 2015 | by chrismarshall-50682See all my reviews

Wooden acting, terrible scouse accent, it looked like a film by a bunch of high school students who wrote the script that morning. I lasted four minutes and had to turn it off.

Such a shame, when the description sounds like an interesting dynamic between central character and his sister's husband. And when there's clearly some good people involved, judging by the credits. But ruined by terrible acting, cringe-worthy accents, low production values and general awfulness.

Definitely a film to avoid.

Don't waste your money on it.
