Boringale... But David Oyelowo saves it from being a complete snooze-fest
2 December 2015 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

David Oyelowo is a underrated and under-appreciated actor, and he fully commits to this movie in his role which is good.

But the movie itself is not as good, it tries to have sort of a mystery feel to it but everything is pretty obvious straight from the gate.

I'm not gonna spoil it but it's one of those movies where most of the running time only one person is in the scene, so if you are not into those kind of movies this movie is not for you.

Me personally I find those movies to be hits or misses, but overall I can't say I'm a big fan and I didn't know it was gonna be one of those movies when I went into it.

For me it fails because I don't find the character all that interesting nor do I care much about what his personal fate will be and there's hardly any character-development either (or plot development for that matter).

But it's more meant as a up and close character study I suppose, it's just not a character that I personally think was worth studying.
