Bad Movie -- the 7 rating is pumped by many many fake "10" ratings
29 January 2018 | by goods116See all my reviews

This movie is awful. I gave it a 4, could have been a 2 or a 3 as well. The cast and the location offer potential, but the story makes virtually no sense, the script is awful, etc. I tried to follow the story and give it a chance, but there is never any coherence or reason given for why anyone is doing anything. Just avoid this one.
