Hypnotic
28 December 2018 | by ParisImpressionH-Y-See all my reviews

This film inherits the old mistakes of Japanese movies: it is flat and straightforward, and there is no rhythm at all. There are only a few gimmicks. In the long and dull film, there is no continuous excitement, so that the audience only wants to sleep.
