An Awful Bore
24 September 2018 | by pigguluSee all my reviews

Tries way to hard to be edgy and poignant with the incessant hypersexualization and teen dream drama that completely dominates the 1st half, but it's all just numbingly dull. The characters are neither exciting nor memorable, and while some have a few ideological points to make, none of them actually make you care. Except for Joel McHale, who is all-around awesome :).

The story itself doesn't do them any favors, either. The leaps in mob paranoia and violence make no sense, and though one can argue such things aren't rational in the first place, in here they really make no sense. Especially when it comes to the heroines being blamed and targeted for everything, despite no reasonable inklings or motives as to how they could be responsible for anything. And the ending is as dumb as can be.

Don't be fooled by the film being billed as a cross between "Heathers" and "The Purge" since it shares practically nothing with the two. Don't get intrigued by the trailers (which, I'll admit, are good). Don't waste your time and money on this.
