    ★★★★½

    I love movies from this time period and I have to say I was not disappointed. The film felt full and complete though I was hoping for a little more suspense. There is a lot of downtime in the movie, but the characters and storyline kept me interested.

    ★★★★

    We purchased this film on 4K based on my wife's desire to watch the film so much. I was a little hesitant at first but hey, I love Jennifer Lawrence. I was highly impressed with the film as a whole. The concept was brilliant. I know I would be scared and done exactly what Chris Pratt did.

    Found this film very very boring. When I saw it was the girl from Hanna, I was all up on it; but meh. Just wasn't for me.
