Writer’s Notion

This movie had the possibilities to become funnier and contained so many interesting developments. This movie after all, may grant any wish and no matter how grand scale or how impossible. However, the protagonists just utilized it for things that reflect human greed. As a movie develops, you realized that the movie does not concentrate much on the limitless power of that Room, but how these people abused the room itself in satisfying their reckless greed and desires. And so, the total potential power of the Room is not known, even though this is clearly limitless since it is illustrated there that the whole world may be made within it. And that is where the viewers are left to hang, thinking of how limit or the extent of power that the room has. The acting is not realistic, and the movie revealed so many issues that never take the explanations.
