This movie made me write my first review and for all the wrong reasons.
The story telling is lacking weight, I did not feel emotionally engaged with the main character for several reasons: the dialogs were just people fighting and and spewing political mambo jambo, the one dimensional characters only emotion was anger, there were too many secondary characters which were just interchangeable and there was no attempt of creating a connection with the main character to care for any of them.
I did not care for the story of Stephan because the director did not make me care for this character, I was just hoping that he would get killed so the movie would be over.
The timeline was also confusing as there were no establishing shots to know where we were, suddenly we are in prison and the next shot we are in a bar without knowing why.
I think this was a very interesting story that just missed all the marks in storytelling.
