Solid watch.
5 January 2019 | by jack122121See all my reviews

I was impressed with the attention to detail and what I liked about this film was that it is current. It highlights real world faults in the criminal justice system and it was well thought out. Clearly a low budget film, not many settings other than the 'basement' and the police station, however, it's well presented and it's interesting even more so because it highlights how criminal intelligence is increasing. A number of good actors put in brilliant performances. I wouldn't say it's a must-watch but it's definitely a solid film I would go to if you are struggling to find something! Not too long and not too short. Strange ending, although these films alway do have them!
