Ah, Damien, You had me going for a moment!
14 January 2018 | by alexaalthoffSee all my reviews

If you're angry at being fooled, you have only yourself to be angry at for being a fool.

The movie looks great, the first part is completely believeable and has some great characters, but it fails to hold water (hardy-har) until the end. The last third of the film drags on and there's not any huge climax. Even though the story line pitters out towards the end, it's still worth watching.
