Not Good Enough
7 May 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

If I can characterise this movie in one word is that Grasshopper was confusing.

The story had premisses to become a good crime thriller, but the three main characters, as well as the rest of the criminals and so, were just there, added to the story to create the world of crime. No prior information on who they are, why they are killers and so were provided in order to get to know them. At least the main character was presented well enough so we could keep up with the story. The ending was satisfying however, as it concluded the story nicely. Again, however, the story was confusing.

So, four out of ten.
