hm - not impressed much
28 January 2017 | by sjarjaSee all my reviews

very bad acting in conversations made this movie a pain to watch. Many, many scenes feel as if the actors read their lines from a tele-prompter for the first time - rather than having learned them. Acting and vocalization feels utterly unnatural and the lines are delivered so badly that i had to cringe more often than not.

In addition to the poor dialogue - the actors rarely seemed to actually talk to each other - and rather seemed to talk to the camera, which - naturally - destroyed any possible chemistry between them.

Meanwhile - some of the acting that was not about talking - was not too bad and felt much more natural.

The story ..... well... it felt like a rip off from some tele-novela - and because the protagonists had no chemistry ... had little to no impact at all. There are no surprises, no twists, no turns, no character development, nothing.

So i am sorry to say that this movie was pretty bad - and a good example how not to do conversations in movies.
