This movie had a 30 point lead & still lossed at the end.
24 June 2018 | by tkaine3See all my reviews

Let me just say the storyline or plot for this movie was phenomenal Kudos to the writers it was a calm and steady pace not slow or boring so I was entertained through out the film, But it never climaxed or hit a high enough level to get my juices going and that's a tragedy to waste such a great storyline & sequence. The actors performed well and the dialogue was sufficient it just wasn't enough. Too many scenes had the actors staring each other down, At times it felt like pulling teeth. They don't speak when they should and they get loose lips when their mouth should be sealed tight. To me that killed alot of the realism the directors or creators were aiming for. This film also had many layers that it never peeled back confining this psychological drama to being a one trick pony. The ending played out and it wasn't the worst ending by any means it was at least understandable but what it didnt do was entertain. That's a no no. I waited the whole movie they give us only one flashback and then just talk minimally to each other and stare back and forth instead of talking while a life hangs in the balance.

All in all I wouldn't recommend this movie to go out of your way to watch because it left so many points on the board by not maximizing the potential of each scene. I would say this film is a little better then average but it's definitely near the top tier independently. This films gets an OK rating.
