A long wait for a surprising end
17 September 2017 | by spayton-2See all my reviews

This movie had a far more interesting trailer than the movie proved to be. The file is just about 2 hours long, and the first 1 hour 40 of that is painful to watch. While the cinema work is pretty good, the acting is TERRIBLE. However, the ending scene, (about 12 - 15 minutes of the end of the movie) delivered a surprisingly spectacular performance. It's almost as if the entire rehearsal was focused on this scene alone, and the rest was podged together. These two leading role actresses suddenly surprise with an extremely well crafted performance. The down side is, it's too little too late. The editors should have taken a heavier hand to the scissor and cut a good 20 to 40 minutes of monotonous non-story advancement, non- character development. In the end I give it a 5, though if I could split the film score, then first hour and 40 minutes gets a 2, the final scene gets a 9.
