When Sophia starts to pass out from hypoglycemicia (low blood sugar), her mother Christina gives her a large dose of insulin. This is the exact opposite of what she should've done; she needed more sugar, like in the OJ that she hadn't drank from breakfast. See more »
Not as bad as some reviewers say it is, considering...
Although these types of stories have been overly done, I still enjoy watching them. This one could have been much better if only director Brian A. Miller knew how to direct.
For starters, he needs to invest in a tripod or something, as the shaky-cam and blurred filming gave me a headache.
To make matters worse, that annoying score was way too loud, it actually muffled some of the scenes dialogue - pretty much can't get any more amateur than that, and considering this isn't Miller's first film, it's a huge oversight, not to mention the score was just too 1980's and out of place in most scenes.
Now the writing by Bryce Hammons was just as terrible, with some scenes that just didn't make sense, as well as major plot issues, BUT, I am more forgiving towards him as he is a rookie writer with this film being only his second. I've also seen much worse writing from more seasoned writers.
The acting from all cast was actually not bad considering it seemed the director could have directed his cast better, but was probably too busy looking for that tripod. Frank Grillo and Johnathon Schaech performed well, and surprisingly so did Bruce Willis. He's been pretty annoying and bad in his latest films, so this one was a few notches up.
If you have nothing better to watch and can get past the annoying score, bad camera work and plot issues, this film is not all that bad. It's an honest 6/10 from me.
