Mixed feelings, but still worth seeing
29 July 2017 | by benimationsSee all my reviews

This movie has it's ups and it's downs. There were some really great suspense scenes, while others where painfully obvious. I feel like they should've spend just a little bit more time on it, to work out the kinks.

Overall I would still recommend you to see it and don't give up on it too soon. There is some really great stuff in there. It's been a while since a movie genuinely had me on the edge of my seat, which completely made up for the bad parts.
