Starts Well But Goes Nowhere Fast
8 September 2020 | by omendataSee all my reviews

This movie started off well with some great acting from all concerned; the bad guy was particularly vile and that boded well for a good bloodbath/massacre but it all went downhill rather quickly as nothing much except a bit of a drama out of a crisis unfolded with little to no real horror; more of a comedy with a bit of drama and a smidgin' of horror thrown in for good measure.

Sylvester McCoy makes the film and I have always liked him; even as Doctor Who as he brings a lot more to the table than most actors these days but all of the actors were really spot on but they just had nothing to really work with scriptwise and I don't know about anyone else but I figured out what was possibly behind the safe from the beginning so the mystery was gone for me quite early on.

Disappointed as it looked like this could be a rival to the USA Don't Breathe movie but it has absolutely nothing in common but it does get an average 5 hatchets out of 10 as it will fill an average Friday nights viewing.
