Bait for it
12 August 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Though better not, because you'll be baiting for a long time. Which can be considered a pun especially considering our main bad guy in this. The movie has a feel of TV movie of the week to it. The main bad guy being so cliché that he almost ruins a completely solid build up. The introduced female characters where really nice and felt "real". Overcoming diversities, standing their own ground and such things.

But again the moment the bad guy comes into the play ... and it's not like the viewer will not be aware of him. It's very predictable, to a point where you are wondering if the women shouldn't have seen it earlier. This is not a generalization, actually the characters seem strong enough to be aware or to have realized what was going to happen. If anyone is doing a generalization it's the movie. And it's a shame, because these things happen and the victims have a hard time battling them ... So while the theme/idea works and it starts off good, it does slide into bad country very quickly
