I was really stoked for this film, and with all the buzz around it too, I was even more excited. And when I came out of the cinema, I was actually pissed off because of how disappointed I was. I want to give credit first off for how awesome and original the story is. And also how great it was shot. And one final credit to both the mother and son who preformed great in the flick.
But my problem with the film overall is, it's such a cop-out. Any time (apart from one key scene early on, which is in the trailer) tension is built and you are on edge, waiting for something to happen, there is always a questionable choice made by the director. Like, I really don't want to spoil anything because I know people are excited like I was, but damn, they really just cop-out anytime something is about to happen.
And I also want to mention the ending and how god damn stupid it was. I said to my girlfriend went I thought the end was approaching:
"Please do not end the way I think you are going to end, please"
And it actually did. I managed to guess the end of the film because it was such a dumb, predictable idea. I just was so mad and shocked that the film wasn't as good as I hoped.
So yeah, coming from someone who was really excited for the film, it just didn't live up to expectations at all.
