Nightmare (scenario)
8 July 2019 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

There are situations you do not wish upon other people (not even your enemies if you are a decent human being). But our main character here finds himself in a position where he seems helpless ... is helpless. If the movie only had him for the whole running time, we might have gotten bored, but the movie knows we need more and we get exactly that.

Like with 127 hours we get flashbacks and other "flashes" too. Like with that American movie (both based on true stories), we also need a strong actor in the main role. I personaly think he carries the load, but in the end it's something you have to decide ... Overall a more than decent effort and if you don't get bored by movies like this, you will like it
