too typical but realistic and more extreme than other lifetime movies
19 April 2019 | by asocialisSee all my reviews

I liked that this one is bit more extreme. I liked the saying "what a horrible way to die" which indicates how extreme this movie is. It's very similar to all other lifetime movies which are all realistic and about love. I liked the reality part such as something we can find ourselves in real life such as jobs, friends, criminals. I did not like the ending which could have progressed to much more story if main characters decided to go along with each other. Instead movies was finished in too typical approach with even bit unrealistic death avoidance and twists at the end. The end was unfortunately the quickest and the most unrealistic and most typical part of this movie.
