Kept waiting for the ''gripping'' to take hold -
28 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

''Hold on a minute--don't get up yet and leave.''

This thought seeped in after the first 5 minutes was endured.

''Give it a chance, man ''

But no, became apparent this flick was a fail. '' CLICK OFF ''

C- list actor described in the summary was in fact a bad B list actor in reality. The male antagonist, worse, hey! he might have been C- listed though.

Where the feeling of being 'gripped' was derived from, know not.

My interest was never piqued - the bored disappointment at every scene took me over and turned me off.
