Good And Bad
7 March 2019 | by socratesadamoSee all my reviews

The story starts out good, but that only lasts for so long. Halfway through it starts to get a little boring. It drags at times. Being a Dutch film, the actors are all ones I've never seen before, but all the performances feel solid and believable.

It's a mystery film of sorts, and the mystery starts out very intriguing, but they payoff isn't all that great. Overall, there are some very good things about this film, but it just feels too long and slow. It could have been tightened up a little bit and used a rewrite or two. Do not recommend.
