User Review

Plodding

Rating: 6/10


I saw this film recently partly based on the other review above. I did
not agree with the general thrust of that review and so I've
contributed one based on my own impressions. As a whodunit the culprit
was fairly obvious taking away any possibility of plot tension. The
general lack of action, drama (or blood) was actually disappointing.

The film did not hit any low notes to be fair and was watchable enough
but it failed to hit any high ones (for me) either.It was well
professionally acted and with workmanlike direction, the scenes were
well shot including the slightly unpleasant one alluded to in the
previous review but the only emotional connect I felt with the film was
some twinges of embarrassment at a couple of points. Sunday evening
filler.
