B-movie, Watchable but throw-away
on 18 October 2013
Good premise, making for a good b-movie.
The parallel story threads are a bit ropey and drag the movie down (as does the overly heavy atmosphere).
If only these had been stronger.....
Compare to a great latter day b-movie, 'the payback'.
The overall story just about hangs together all the way through and builds well, essential for this type of movie.
Time spent on the love story is too long given the disproportionate return..
The two leads (and the mother) are less than convincing, stronger performances would have elevated the story.
The 'investigation by the friend' thread, is weak.
I'll give it a 2nd watch some months down the line.
5 out of 10.
