CF’s Mini Review
Story: This movie is completely bland, there is no atmosphere or tension at all. All attempts at creating a menacing undercurrent during the girl’s imprisonment fell completely flat. Even her escape and reunion with her parents left me feeling cold.
Acting: The film was plenty long enough to build the characters and give them depth, but it failed miserably. I can only blame the directing and the script.
Special Effects: N/A
The Burn: slow burn all the way through. A bit of a borefest.
Best Viewed: DVD.
Is it Any Good?: Not really.
