Dislike unnecessary exposition? Enjoy coming up with your own interpretations in film? If so, watch this.
1 November 2015 | by Dylman12See all my reviews

"Catch Me Daddy" is a type of film we, as viewers, don't see very often anymore. It's not a particularly "deep" film but it also doesn't give you any information you don't need nor does it give you silly exposition to know something within the movie. Personally, I find it easy to appreciate that kind of film-making.

Apart from some of the dialogue being hard to understand from certain characters thick accents, there are not much flaws within the film from a directing, writing, cinematography, or editing stand point. My rating is mostly based on me being a hard ass while critiquing.

With a tension building plot, very cool soundtrack, stellar performances from a couple of the cast members, and a few brutal, brutal scenes, I can recommend this film to almost anyone who doesn't mind watching a movie made in a different country from their own. Enjoy!
