A Gut-Wrenching/Feel-Good Movie!
7 April 2018 | by AhmedSpielberg99See all my reviews

I want to know why Marja-Lewis Ryan insisted to merge a philosophical message with the storytelling. This decision could easily ruin the entire film because it is done terribly! That harmed the tone, the pacing, That made the movie has scenes that are so long for its own good. Also, the movie didn't need to be more than one hour long or even less than one hour long.

Fortunately, there are many great thing that made 6 Balloons so special for me; but it's being very realistic is what made this movie really good. The movie is an emotional journey that is very effective. It's a moving story that will tug at your heartstrings.

The dialogue is what made the movie very realistic, but the direction is what made the movie a brutal journey that captures the emotional horror involved.

Dave Franco was great as the addicted bother, Seth. He really made me very nervous! Abbi Jacobson ,who played Katie, Seth's sister, did an awesome job; her reactions and her dramatic moments are reasonable.
