good but not ahhhhhamziiing
30 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

the movie was good it held centripetal force and the characters were good,if not realistic. yet there were times the actress relied to much on her acting. for an example her body movements seemed so forced like she was going with what she thinks sexuality is, rather going with what she has.Marilyn honed her sexuality to make yourself her. the actress should have owned hone whats hers.

thats the best way to be sexy and fierce,which is what Marilyn is and was. not to mention at times the way the actress so breathy i couldn't understand a lot of what she was saying.

i had to rewind a lot and soon i gave up i felt like deleting it. i was watching a movie where the person couldn't open there mouth and talk.. while playing a character. i felt like i was in a stoner movie or Adam sandler movie or worst.... M.Night Shamalyan.... in all good movie but please open your mouth, you can play a character while still saying words.its called acting i give it a 6.5 in all.
