Surprisingly good
11 April 2019 | by flickconnSee all my reviews

I had no expectations going into this movie and ended up being really surprised by this indie flick. Typically movies like this have a small personal story at their core but this one is much more epic than anything I've seen from similar indie/festival flicks. Without giving away any spoilers I'll say this one is great for people who love crime movies or shows like Breaking Bad. Several scenes are really good and tense wile other parts of the movie are beautifully shot, looking like they belong to a bigger (more expensive) movie.
