    Great review here!

    It’s a shame the film doesn’t sound that great. However you’ve done a good job selecting what worked and what didn’t…

    Well done!

    This site always seems to give negative reviews to films I have otherwise seen good reviews for…not that it’s a bad thing, it’s an opinion after all! :)

      Well this film has been given negative reviews wherever you look – I’d say its been almost universal negative reviews. If you read my review I am actually kinder than most critics have been. Most people have given it 1 star and said there are no redeeming features. I enjoyed the film and there a lot of good points, but there’s no denying that it could have been better and the negatives outnumber the positives. :)

        No offence, but where have you been looking? (I haven’t seen it myself so I can’t judge myself) Everyone I have spoken to have said it’s amazing, and it’s got a lot of positive stuff on IMDb last time I checked. I’m not attacking you or anything, just saying a lot of writers on here are much harsher than other places

          I have been looking at the actual film reviews of established film sites (IMDb is not a site I trust or use). You can even look at the general consensus on Rotten Tomatoes (Which takes all reviews that have been posted about the film across the internet), it has an appreciation Index of 14% – which basically means it has flopped. I can assure you right now; I know what I am talking about. I did lots of research into this before, and after going to see this film. The film has not performed well critically or financially. Your friends may have enjoyed it, but they only form one tiny fraction of the overall opinion of the film.
