    There was potential here, but the end result felt really half baked. Hadish adds nothing to this, she has no chemistry with Isaac, was really surprised there was supposed to be a genuine relationship here. Would have been a better movie if it just stuck with the real meat of the plot and Isaac's character. The surrounding cast really just does nothing to match what he brings to this, and the story doesn't do his character justice when it comes to how someone like him would act. The potential was there, but the film just isn't as good as the potential was.
