OK...so this was crap
6 June 2016 | by idontdodrugsSee all my reviews

The movie revolves around a group of friends taking a drug that evaporates all inhibitions. So far so good.

This interesting premise and some artsy scenes are pretty much all there is to this flick. The whole rest, nearly all of its runtime is just wasted time - sadly to say at least.

The rather well known actors seem like caricatures - there is overacting and underacting - never consistent, never convincing. The only one that seems to enjoy his role is Pierce Brosnan, actually I would consider his performance one of the highlights in this movie.

The personalities of the characters are plainly sketched and clichés of group dynamics are just thrown in your face. Interesting deeper relationships or conflicts are strangely lacking.

Direction is uninspired - the proclaimed outrageousness that the premise promises is not found in the movie - instead you get minutes of quite uninteresting party scenes that do not even convey the party vibe and even lack the uneasiness it should deliver as it foreshadows the very foreseeable events.

Even if you want to watch this expecting to see some raunchy scenes like a good B-movie might offer you - you will be disappointed. Sadly this movie is actually a time waster. Granted with an interesting premise and some nice Pierce Bronsnan scenes and even a couple of art-house scenes - but very underwhelming as such.
