Dated concept with a bad score
5 May 2019 | by matt-52507See all my reviews

I went in thinking this would be OK but sadly not. The concept is as dated as 1980's haircuts and tries to play homage to 'coming of age', 'teen' films of the past in the way in which it's filmed. However, it falls apart fairly quickly.

The acting at times is trying and the team behind the dubbing should walked out the room. The dubbing at times was terrible it flickered between a B movie or a "straight to video" movie that you'd expect out of a high school project, not a Netflix production.

The score - also shocking, the music throughout is terrible, doesn't add anything to the scenes or the film itself and clearly was the most underfunded aspect of the film.

Sounds harsh but I truly wish I'd saved my time on this one.
