I was completely sold by the premise of this movie. At it's core... it REALLY is a great plot... even as it continues to unfold. But there were opportunities missed to make it more enjoyable to watch. It's already a very dark movie... literally as well as figuratively. The grim tone of the characters moods and situation were reflected in the use of the dark and sometimes monotonous tones on screen. This in and of itself isn't a bad thing.. but you have to balance that with something a little more engaging for your audience.
Ultimately I still enjoyed this film for what it was. I'm glad I watched it and while I personally believe that it was excellent at it's core, I can only assume that the lackluster responses are a direct result of how unnecessarily boring it was at times.
