Better than I expected
22 May 2020 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

Not a flawless film, but for a B-grade film that Matthew Kennedy wrote the story and screenplay - his first ever, it was quite impressive for an amateur writer. There were some minor plot and technical issues, but the 111 min runtime with its on point pacing, held my interest and kept me in suspense. The directing and score were decent, and cinematography was great. All cast performed excellent, especially Pegg, but I felt Lily Collins wasn't the right casting choice; her performance was excellent, and although she's 31 years old, right from the start of the film, her young teenage look wasn't convincing for a fierce D.A. Nevertheless, an enjoyable drama/thriller I'd recommend, especially considering the slim-pickings of films available during the Corona virus. It's a well deserved 8/10 from me.
