What amazes me the most about this film are the reviews that said words to the effect "I had to watch it again and again" etc. etc.
The ONLY spellbinding aspect of this movie that kept me mildly enthralled was wondering ...will this movie EVER get any better, or even have a real "point" that I can take away from this??? ...is this movie a lead-up to a suspenseful climax??? Something that will make all this time I've spent watching it... worth while? Sadly, both answers were no.
I found the plot simply ludicrous and unbelievable on so many levels... this COULD not and WOULD not have EVER played out like this... in real life.
I virtually NEVER give a movie ONE star, but I've made the exception here.
