The plot is extremely slow and that’s my issue with the film. It has a short running time which makes it bearable but there was no action or drama for the majority of the film. I feel like the cast were brilliant but they were wasted. I’m so surprised that Naomi watts is the star in this film. Why she agreed to it I’ll never know. It’s full of clichés and was quite predictable. The scenes that were supposed to be climactic didn’t feel like a climax at all. There weren’t any real tense scenes. I never really felt frightened for the characters either. You know from the start that they’re not going to die so it’s not surprising at all.
It could have been better. The concept of the film is promising but as soon as the film starts to play you just find yourself losing interest. It was painful having to sit through this film until the end. I felt like after 20 minutes I was too invested but honestly, this isn’t a film I’d recommend. It’s just boring which is really unfortunate.
