Not Worth Seeing
13 May 2021 | by catsie-59129See all my reviews

Some tension, but very little actual excitement. Feels like the script was written by an AI who was made to read a bunch of thriller and family-friendly movie scripts then write its own without being told the difference between the two genres. The climax and resolution are disappointing and confusing.

I don't recommend this movie for anyone. I will say that the acting was just fine (which is why I'm giving it more than one star), but I can't figure out what the writer/director were thinking. I wish I'd had the guts to go ask for my money back.
