Storyline

Hayley Udall tries to make ends meet for herself and her 14 year-old daughter while providing alimony for a horrible ex-husband. She wishes her problems with her ex could go away, and upon venting her frustrations one night, finds herself tangled up in a pact with two people (Melanie and Kevin) to "eliminate" each other's problems. It seemed innocent wishful thinking before, but as people end up dead - including Hayley's ex-husband - Hayley is trapped into fulfilling the pact or risk taking the fall for murder. She tries to clear her name but the police (led by Detective Marks) are eyeing her for her ex-husband's death as well as others. Then Melanie abducts Hayley's daughter as leverage - in order to force Hayley to follow through and kill one last person. With Detective Marks trying to find the truth, Hayley must hurry to save her daughter and find a way to avoid committing murder.

Disappointing, and I am being generous.
1 December 2017 | by julian-640-544058See all my reviews

In viewing this film, I expected an updated interpretation of "Strangers on a Train", but I was WAY off.

This film appears to have been made by film school students that, unfortunately, we not doing well in the course. The dialog could have been written by a child. The lack of character development supports that theory, and the plot was predictable (yawn). The delivery was amateurish, forced and, in some cases, over the top. The acting teacher had should have been (and no doubt was) ashamed although the 'director' has to share some of the blame for this disaster.

Now let me comment on the cinematography: IF it was done on a cell phone (and I suspect it was) then it was not bad, however, if it were done proper movie equipment… wow….

That brings us to the music. The background music was not bad. That is the FIRST time. Now I know that if something works you stick with it, but the composer should have been told that there are more than 8 bars to a piece of music, and repeating them over and over and over and over…well, just gets boring.

The weak dialog, cardboard characters, high school drama club acting, poor technical execution and boring score lead me to ask only one question: WHY?
