User Reviews

Starts well but goes off the boil quickly
6 October 2018 | by mjsregSee all my reviews

The movie starts well with what looks like an engaging and strong story, then gradually fades to the point of just wanting it to end as soon as possible.

Technically the film was fine, as was the acting as far as I am concerned - the story and the way it was told are the problem. All of a sudden it goes from being a logical progression into some kind of disjointed mess of editing that throws the viewer out of it, then desperately tries to win them back.

One to miss and/or forget.
