Clint Says: Wait for the DVD and make someone else rent it

 

 

Oh, dear director, what did you do? This movie started out with an interesting premise and for the first hour and 15 minutes the suspense was incredible. Even though the movie felt slow at times there was still this overwhelming feeling of dread and fear for the main character. 

 

Then the last 15 minutes played. 

 

I can't convey to you how utterly stupid this movie went without using words like SHARKNADO. Really. It got THAT bad. I was literally rolling my eyes and feeling embarrassed for all the people that worked on this movie. 

 

It is very difficult to not recommend a movie that has Blake Lively in a bikini for 90 minutes, but this is so bad that even she can't make it worth seeing.
