Some positivity and I can understand why but for me there are too many characters and none are actually worth investing in, so when some are bumped off, even some main characters, I wasn't really bothered.
Does that make it a bad film, no but it does make it a bit of a cobbled together umpteen scene film that will soon be forgotten.
As it is the Directors first effort, I'll give him some leaway. It is far from Cages straight to dvd/stream worse efforts, but thats not saying much.
Just about watchable, if nothing else to do.
MGN Rating 6/10
