An interesting thriller but didn't quite reach its full potential.
22 May 2020 | by cristinasoulmatesSee all my reviews

* There is no end credit scene *

The director Vaughn Stein and crew brought an interesting thriller but didn't quite reach its full potential and yet it was good. The story is about the secrets of an inheritance left behind when a powerful and wealthy member of a family dies. What killed this movie was how weak the suspense tone was because the events were as expected but even so it was still so captivating. I was always asking this question, "what are you doing!" there were so many moments that had me at that point and I was so engaged in the story. The beginning was too revealing they should have changed a small detail of not exposing the surroundings. What saved this movie with its predictability was the strong performance of Lily Collins.

The cast was magnificent and the conversations between Lilly Collins and Simon Pegg were gripping. Simon Pegg is a great actor and watching him in this kind of role was refreshing. I would recommend heavily this film for Lilly Collins, what an unforgettable performance every decision she made and her desperation to know the truth caught my interest with such a strong presence. If one wants to know how good this female actor is, this would be the perfect movie to watch her true talents. Connie Nielsen her on-screen mother, has an intimidating presence and I wanted more scenes between them. This powerful family is interesting, even her on-screen brother Chace Crawford, the way they all protect each other made me yearn for more.

I wasn't too impressed with the music, the composer Marlon Espino needed to amplify the intensity and he failed to do it in the climax although not all his music was bad, I loved his soft steady theme.
