A lot of potential... kind of wasted
11 August 2018 | by educallejeroSee all my reviews

This is a text book black comedy, with excellent writing and acting. The movie creates believable tension withing a realistic group of friends. It plants the seeds for an amazing finalle, and then the decision they took was the worst possible. It makes the movie reatroactively bad and its a shame. The movie is great, but the ending a disaster. I decided to give it a five then.
