Comments– This one was a weird one for me to rate- I enjoyed it, liked the characters and the acting, loved the filming locations, and the Blu-Ray of the movie. But, I didn’t feel the story was told as well as it could have been. It was a good movie, no doubt about it, and for fear of giving away spoilers, I can’t say much about it. I just wanted some more clarification on why some things happened the way they did (that is really all I can say without giving away something). The movie was solid, but I thought it could have done a bit better. Good.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
Modest but twisty B-thriller is elevated by nice character touches, witty writing and its tropical setting. Nice review, check out mine when you can!!
