Slow, boring and unengaging.
6 August 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The main issue I had with this movie is that it's boring. I don't mean a little boring, I mean pretty damn boring. The subject matter is highly emotive and normally such a topic would set the stage for an exciting, dramatic, even divisive experience which would be the subject of much controversy and some considerable exposure. Well, unfortunately it really ticks none of the boxes needed for good flick and instead ends up as a boring account of a rather odd occurrence some 15 years after then initial incident.

I don't know who or what this was aimed at, where this was going, or what sort of experience it was supposed to convey, but sadly unless its intention was to put me to sleep, any other goal was well wide of the mark. For such an intense subject, really just following through with half decent execution should net an average score, but here the proceedings are a bit of a mess.

Much of the body of this film is filler and realistically an hour and a half is way too long given most of it is useless padding that adds no depth, dimension or understanding. So many pointless shots with silly music, so little conveyed with such a lengthy production.

There is a lot wrong with this film but essentially I think there is at least a little wrong with everything, and a lot wrong with Most of it. I can't say there are any redeeming factors as it is barely watchable at best.

I'd avoid it and watch something more meaningful like Tom & Jerry instead.
