    A Cure for Wellness

    ★★★

    Going into this, I was expecting a beautiful film lacking somewhere in the plot area based on critics' reviews.

This felt like one film up until the last 30 minutes where it turns into something completely different that I'm not into.

    I've seen this film about four times, and according to most people, that's 3 1/2 times too many.

    I know why I really enjoy this film and why most others don't as well. The premise is original and the characters were great. Though Shiloh is not the best actor, Noah stole the show and plays an engaging anti-villan.

    A nice, new rape-revenge movie of the new age.
