Need caffeine to wake me up.
29 July 2018 | by gieavillafanaSee all my reviews

Too slow and dragging. Needs more editing. The girl has the same face/expression all throughout the movie. The younger policeman needs more workshop. Every actor did well except the two main actors Reyes and Apistol. Cinematography is good. Overall, film lacks this and that, hence fails to move the audience.
