    The Real Thing

    ★★★½

    She gives you what you need.

    But is that the real thing? And does it matter? In the end maybe all you have to do is either find someone to save or someone to save you. But lest we forget, no one can save anyone, especially if they don't want to be saved. Maybe realizing that is the Real Thing. But go figure.

    It's like someone had an idea and then they had another 20 ideas and they thought, let's just throw them all together and it may work. Well, it doesn't but i was curious to see just how complicated this could get which i guess is a win? Sort of, lol.

    I get that it's all been done before but just trying to surprise and engage the viewer by adding more and more twists is rarely successful.

    The ending/final reveal is…
