Listless inane movie, badly written
31 July 2020 | by flashfluidimdbSee all my reviews

The flashbacks are horribly embedded in the movie, in a way that the story does not flow. It just leaves you wishing they stop.

The special effect (just one) is clearly of the worst quality and looks quite artificial. I have nothing against low budget, but low budget asks for creative means, not cheap effects.

The actors are a fine bunch, but as always, good actors can't carry a weak story + bad directing on top. Their dialogues sound stiff and unnatural.

All in all, the movie tries too hard to appear open minded and inspirational, but turns out to be a movie that you would stop watching in the middle and never think back about it. Serious topics deserve more than a childish patronizing treatment like this.
