    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    First off this movie was sold to me as an action movie, however, it was not which kind of pissed me off when the movie ended 15 mins early.

Quite a enjoyable movie all in all if you don't expect to have a final showdown.

This scene definitely got to me.

    I really liked this movie when it started, but the longer it went on the less I looked it. The time of movie was inconsistent, it started as a survival movie but then changed to something much darker and the final act it felt like a silent goofball movie. There was this one comical scene that immediate makes you regret laughing because the guilt is so heavy. I enjoyed the story overall which is why I rated it so highly.
