    Rating based on the very (very) poorly directed first 10 minutes where the entire cast manages to get outperformed by a piece of baklava.

    A kissing movie that's actually good? Inconceivable!

    It was the leisurely paced second act that really won me over. The conversations between our four unlikely heroes whilst on the road to rescue a damsel in distress from Native American cannibals was quite pleasing. Yes, even Matthew Fox. I didn't even recognise Richard Jenkins. Maybe it was the exuberant running time or the fact that it wasn't that visually engaging but I felt the movie was lacking in thrills. The cinematography was at times very distant which didn't help in building the emotional heft that the grisly crescendo was aiming for. A promising debut nonetheless.
