Writer’s Opinion

Whoever wrote the dialogue of the film clearly had never interacted with a real human. After 20 minutes of watching, Justin’s character was not unlikeable anymore with those ceaseless rambling that the viewers gave up. There had been zero action or just something compelling that will hook someone in. It would likely be suited best to a low budget type of play and not for a movie. The movie preview was all intriguing, however, if you cannot hook a viewer during the first 20 minutes of an hour of the entire script that needed to be rewritten.

The initial more than one hour of this dull crap, is a discussion between Hap and Mina. Nothing really happens. Nothing!! She’s overly mysterious and he’s overly awkward. And they did nothing just talking. It is like watching in a theater of a stage show film. And it is a really boring stage show. Watching a dull and sad is a total waste of time. For those who are not watching this still, save your time and everything and just avoid this crap. It is a weird, boring film and nothing really happen.
