Decent movie
18 April 2017 | by zaineegirlSee all my reviews

I watched this movie because I'm a fan of Olivia Holt. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Merrell twins were in The Standoff as well. I really liked the play on Vanessa and Veronica's Youtube in the movie. Plus their bubbly personality adds a lot to the movie.

Overall the acting was pretty good. There were a few spots that it could've been better. But for the most part it was decent.

The one thing I can't decide is if I like the plot or not. It's kind of a lame plot and the end is very predictable. Even with a lame plot I still enjoyed the movie. I liked the positive messages throughout and the contestants from all walks of life. Maybe the best way to put is this: The Standoff has more of a reality TV show feel as opposed to a movie. I think there are people who will enjoy this movie. But if you're looking for an outstanding movie that deserves an Oscar, this isn't it.
