A movie that deals with an important subject, but poorly done
After reading so many positive reviews, many a bit too over the top to be honest, however I thought it was worth a shot, no it wasn't. One reviewer called it "amazing". Amazing? Really? No, what it was was slow, and ponderous and B O R I N G. The movie deals with an important subject to be sure, that of sex trafficking, and with a bit of imagination (including a better script and acting), even on a small budget you could do this important subject justice, but not in this case. You never get the feeling of tension, of adrenaline rushing heart pounding fear that our protagonist would expect to feel if he really was put in the situation you see in this movie. I found myself having to force myself to sit through this movie and I don't say that about a lot of movies. If you want to see a REAL heart wrenching movie on this difficult subject, watch Lilya 4-ever. That movie deserves it's high rating, not so Priceless, it should be rated much lower in my opinion.
