When it comes to IMDB, this movie has 7 out of 10 rating, so its pretty clear that despite many negative reviews, people are enjoying this movie.
In my opinion, the negative reviews are because of the storyline presentation. I must say that the story was not presented well as it should be. Along with that, VFX used in this movie isn’t that promising.
Whether to watch it or not:
I personally don’t like Donovan Marsh’s direction for this movie along with the story presentation. But despite all these facts, I will suggest watching this movie at least once. If you could wait for its home release then you can skip watching it on a big screen.
Although this movie has some poor factors, it delivers some of the best action, drama, and thrill moments. That adds this movie to a must watch list.
