Felt like an eternity
16 November 2004 | by jasamSee all my reviews

I could not wait for this movie to end.

The camera work was great as was the location but the story just does not draw a viewer in. The characters are flat and draw no emotion from the viewer.

It leaves you wondering only when the end will come. The movie had potential that just was never fulfilled. The story could be interesting, but either something is lost in translation or it has been poorly executed. The plot develops poorly, the characters don't develop in a way to make you like, hate, or feel any other way about them. Overall it was quite dull, not fulfilling, and definitely not entertaining. Blah is the perfect description of it all.
