From interesting to confusion to painful
8 March 2019 | by nadiaenisSee all my reviews

Or to put it differently: nice story, horrible storytelling. Or: what the hell was the director thinking?

Had a lot of potential but it seems that there wasn't enough technical skill to get through with it. After half the movie you just lose completely the story arc and every emotional connection to the characters. And then it gets really, really painful to watch. Completely made up problems, new unnecessary introductions, horrible acting from some parts, it's a mess.
