Actually not that bad
25 October 2014 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

I sat down to watch this movie without knowing all that much about it, though I was expecting the worst. To my surprise, I didn't find the movie to be terrible at all. True, it is not without faults. It's pretty low budget, with the seams (or cameraman shadows) showing at times. Also, the movie is a bit too low key; the bad guys don't come across as a real threat in almost all of their scenes. On the positive side, however, the movie moves at a pretty swift pace; the seventy four or so minute running time seems the right length for this particular story. And the movie does keep you curious as to what plot turns will happen and if the protagonists will be able to escape from harm. While I don't think this is a movie that's worth actively seeking out, I can say with full confidence that I have seen many, many movies that are much worse than this one. If you stumble across this movie, give it a chance.
