It is almost like watching two completely different movies. While in the writing was none to write about, the relief from the cast has been rather well performed. The cinematography has been fantastic. The soundtrack has been wonderful. The premise has been intriguing, albeit not everything is too original, and even though it appeared quite rushed, particularly in the last half of the movie, it has been quite enjoyable. The movie deserves more credit than it is taking and it is hoped any and everything who is reading this could give the movie an opportunity before blowing this off-based on every bad review.
The movie is a mind-bending, amazing brain-teaser that you can see and the movie is really incredible and absolutely worth to watch. It can keep you enthralled together with the masterful storytelling and at the border your seat with some psychological thrills. It is also a fascinating and unique movie unlike anything you have ever read or watched before.
