incredible boring movie!
19 February 2012 | by roumen-adSee all my reviews

Well, I said just "boring" to avoid to be censored.

As said, it can heal you from disliking Hollywood movies. They have at least some kind of casual entertainment. Which seems (after you saw that movie) not so easy.

There was hard to find some piece of logic there. Maybe the biggest hit was when someone (who? and why?) killed the very bad guy, the policeman come and smiling offered himself to help that it seems like a suicide. It seemed that no-one was interested any further for this case.

It was amazing seeing how Wallander are sweating in Capetown and begging for cool blower... while the others go with overcoat on the streets. Accidentally I knew how the weather is in Capetown and it is not especially hot even in the Summer. But this should be Africa and even South, so, it should be hot, isn't it?

It was so boring that I was interested if something gonna happen. At the very end (maybe) I switched it off.
