very good idea -- needed better script
Sunday, October 4, 2020
I watched this as I do like courtroom dramas and it had a shorter run time the most movies -- but there were so many holes left in the script, and there was certainly enough time in the film left over, to fill in, to bring more satisfaction, closure.It did keep me interested, but I felt kind of used, manipulated by the end of the movie. There was a lot of trickery in Keanu's VO narratives, clearly needed to pull it off, but it bothered me... it just wasn't smart enough. But perhaps feeling manipulated was part of the idea because everybody was manipulated in the movie.I think this movie wanted to have a big wow of a twist, like Sixth Sense... "I see dead people" but they didn't totally pull it off. I knew way too early in the film something was up, Keanu was the surprise factor.Keanu felt very bland and boring. Gugu...
