not so bad
5 November 2012 | by akasaka3See all my reviews

I got surprised that the rate of this movie is below 6.

It was not so bad actually.

The actor of title role was playing good.

His way of speaking made me uncomfortable. because it made me feel the character's, Luke's anxiety.

I felt as if it was real.

The story is not so new. its old fashion theme. but it was as well-made as Perks of being a wallflower.

But after his geeky colleague appeared, it got boring a little bit.

in total, it was not so bad.
