In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.
First Half is really promising, lets it down in the Second Half
Martin McDonagh's second feature film is one which starts with a huge amount of promise, with a great cast and some fast paced and fun dialogue for the first 30 minutes or so and a pretty classic premise. However I think the film really starts to decline from there as the movie tries to something different by subverting what you'd expect in a movie like this but in the end is let down by basically everything in the film from the acting to the writing and even just the plot really. 6 might be a bit harsh and is probably marking my disappointment for a movie from a director who made one of my favourite films but a 6/10 isn't really that bad, it's still a decent flick. I'd recommend it.
