complete waste
2 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Watched this at a boring party, and believe me had I had any other option I'd be so mad I wasted two hours of my life that I'll never get back. Now if I would've paid to see this in a theater I'd be livid. One of those movies u watch hoping it'll get better and never does. Slow paced with no payoff and how it's getting a 7.1 IMDb rating is completely beyond me. Awful awful movie. Moves at a snails pace and the characters you just don't care what happens to them. Hate is such a strong word but this movie is pretty close.
