Always trying to be reasonable... but....
25 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where to start. I know, how about the end. I was so extremely happy when this ended. Never have I engaged in a flick that made me not just uncomfortable, but aggravated. To the core.

There is this little thing called storytelling. I don't care what kind of messages the movie, and I suppose the book, wanted to impart. The art of storytelling matters. This did not get past first base in this most basic function... how to tell a story. It was just one point nailed into your brain after the other. I may as well have just read a scientific journal or the periodic chart or the ingredients of a box of corn flakes and garnered the same bullet points.

I cannot even delve further into things like the acting, the production value, the... aw... fugetaboutit. That this failed on the most fundamental level of telling a story, it is senseless to examine anything else deeper. Absolutely dull as... well.. this will now be my new standard to when articulating the definition of empty, dull, gutless... a full expression of a vacuum.

To the writers, directors, those who fund things like this... stop. Pick another field. Storytelling is not something you understand, so stop before you try it again.

An absolute zero of a film.
