No comedy - no horror - just pretentious rubbish.
28 June 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a wholly disappointing film from start to finish.

The story is weak and uninteresting. It had the potential to be a reasonable story, but that seems to have been sacrificed for something someone (probably the luvvy brigade) thinks is a bit humorous over drinks and ego massages.

It was incredibly tedious to watch - so tedious I fell asleep twice and had to watch it again just in case I had missed a pivotal moment or two

  • I hadn't.


I am a fan of British independent film making that shows talent and skill - even if it's not perfect. But this film just fails to make my low standards.

You'd probably find eating a cheese and nail sandwich more interesting
  • one to miss.
