User Reviews

 
Falls a bit flat due to a confluence of factors.
1 June 2020 | by marcssubsSee all my reviews

I'd give it a 5.5 overall.

Acting: I thought that both David Strathairn and Julie Ann Emery did a first rate job. And although Jeffrey Dean Morgan's acting was fine, my wife and I weren't that impressed with the performance of the star, Julian Feder.

Story: Although the story was good, the rapidity at which events unfolded took made the story feel a bit forced.

Pool/9Ball: Whereas the game of pool fit nicely into both The Hustler and The Color of Money, it just sort of felt like it didn't quite belong here.

Inconsistencies w/o any reason as to why: Seatbelts off, seatbelts on, seatbelts off. Bike on the rv / no bike on the rv. Flat tire / no flat tire.

I feel that there was a much more enjoyable version of this movie trying to come out, but it just fell sort of flat for us.
