Lotta Potential...but Little Realized.
16 November 2018 | by nb-19881See all my reviews

Wow.

There's an hour and a half I'll never get back...

this film, which has decent cinematography and acting, doesn't know what it wants to be when it grown up and, hence, it's much ado about nothing in the end.

No real plot. Movie doesn't hang together. The first 2/3 is a different movie entirely and has little bearing on the last third, which sort of centers around the promised plot.

But then is falls flat and ends horribly.

If you liked the "non-ending ending" of Lost you'll love this.

Avoid.
