Obviously, a low budget, but that a bad film does not make. The direction and acting are not bad at all and actually have some very effective sequences, but they are loaded in the movie's first half. It's the script that is the culprit and it almost seems like the screenwriter ran out of ideas or time or something.
Don't be fooled by the first 30 minutes, which are ferocious, dynamic, mysterious and very promising. Sadly, it goes downhill very rapidly and does not recover, descending into paralysis and repetition. The ending is totally disappointing.
