(This review may contain spoilers).
I thought this movie looked quite entertaining to watch… and right from the first scene, even though I had no idea of the characters involved or the events leading up to the first scene, it drew me in.
Out of the three who were stealing from people, I really only found Alex to be the most sympathetic. While I felt for Rocky and her situation, I couldn’t say I really liked her, even though her survival instinct was strong. And Money was a character with very little depth to him. I would have liked a little bit more background to the ‘friendship’ formed between the three of them.
There was a lot to this movie that wasn’t shown, such as the relationships between other characters. I actually felt there was quite a small cast… but despite not forming too much of an emotional connection to two of the three characters, I felt there was a lot of tension in this movie.
There was a lot of violence in this movie, but although there were a number of jump scares, I also thought it was good to see a lot of the suspense came from the atmosphere. There were some really good scenes of lighting in this… and I liked being able to see the man able to get around. For a lot of the movie, I was on his side… but that did start to change, especially when I began wanting Alex to survive.
There wasn’t a lot of background to this movie, but it was good to have things revealed as the movie went on. I felt that, with the exception of Money, all of the characters had moments of being sympathetic and really bad guys throughout the film.
I really liked the dog, though… and it was good to see some elements of foreshadowing. I wouldn’t watch this movie again, but I did find it entertaining to watch it the first time through.
