This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
not gonna lie, i'm still mad this show was cancelled but at least they got to wrap things up beautifully yet not as neatly as one would have wished for.
ANDREW HAIGH really does work wonders behind the camera, the way he shots RAUL CASTILLO to build slowly and subtly the big revelation at the end was truly great.
it is no surprise that both JANE FONDA and VANESSA REDGRAVE deliver outstanding performances but this film overall struggles to keep the story tight and focused even when it does feature many fantastic sequences specially that long train ride that is as suspenseful and thrilling as one could wish for.
scary and smart this film is as well crafted as every other movie but unlike many and based on a screenplay that homages and pays tributes to many genre classics JAMES WAN playful and resourceful directing makes the whole thing a dynamic and electric picture that never stops haunting you.
stumbling while swinging between physical, raunchy comedy and over-the-top melodrama this film never lacks ideas, however the writing must have been a problem from the start since the movie fails to feel as a whole maybe because of its many turns and twists; nevertheless it is an enjoyable experience with many [maybe too many] things to keep you busy enough [the production design team had some fun with those sweet animated stories and the very memorable photoshopped pictures].
