Waste of Time
26 January 2020 | by kds-76564See all my reviews

Read the reviews and hoped it was better. Not! The movie had potential. The actors were all very good, but the story was convoluted and had many holes in it. So many unanswered questions!! Then it ENDS?! What a disappointment - if it had ended 5 minutes earlier, the ending would've been better. We walked out feeling as if we wasted our afternoon.
