User Reviews: I mean come on people, really?
This movie wasn’t bad because it has unanswered questions, I’ll give you that. I’m okay with not having answers – especially because why shoud we? Do people think if something like this ever happened (which I know it won’t, but still), we would have answers? That is definitely not the problem. Without any answers, there still could have been scary or shocking moments, action, character development.
The problem is this movie is just pointless. There are no interesting characters, there are no scary or shocking moments, there is limited and dumb action, no character development, nothing. I’ts really just 2 hours of nothing.
I have seen reviews here before watching, but I thought there is so much hype, it can’t be that bad. IT IS. I mean should this be a horror movie? Drama? Sc-Fi? I just couldn’t tell, becuase it is none of those. It’s just a bad movie.
To anyone with a little sense for the genre or movies in general, just don’t waste 2 hours of your valuable time.
Also, I don’t care that it’s based on a book. It’s either a bad adaptation or a really bad book. Maybe both. But after this movie, I’m definitely not reading the book.
