James Badge Dale
Very well acted and directed, but too long and slowly paced
This film this was a surprisingly well made B-grade British thriller by novice director and writer Matt Palmer, of which this is his first full length feature film. It's a shame though that the producers felt the need to add so many clearly fake reviews to fool their potential audience. We're not dumb and it's easy enough to click on the 10/10 users name and see it's their only review. Nevertheless, the directing and acting shined, the cinematography was great and together was enough to keep the viewer elevated in suspense throughout the entire film. The writing was decent but a little predictable. It did however end with a nice questionable 'next scene' to leave the viewer with their own conclusion. All actors where outstanding in their roles and very convincing in their characters. This film was cast perfectly. My main complaint was the overly long 101 min length with the extremely slow pace. This film should have been edited down to a max of 80-90 mins, or played back at 1.5x speed. This would have increased the suspense and tension and made the film more enjoyable. It's an honest and well deserved 8.5/10 from me, rounded down to an 8 for the fake reviews.
