    This is a disappointment for me. I've heard some great things from others but I found this overall to be pretty standard fare.

    That being said I found the first 45 or so minutes to be absolutely outstanding but the final act went somewhere that I really wish it didn't and that's when it lost me.

I was so on board with this film and then with about 30 mins left reveal after reveal just had me rolling my eyes. The performances here are top notch especially from Daniel Kaluuya who plays Chris (great name by the way!) the main character.

    Its not the acting that lets this film down but the ridiculous conceit that we are supposed to believe. To me this…
