6/10 – Clocking in at 2 hours and 43 minutes, this is a film that outstayed its welcome. It’s not that I don’t have the patience to watch through long films, but this dragged and the payoff was so small that you barely had any time to sit and relish in the twist. That being said, it was well acted, well produced, the story-line was original and intriguing, but it was overall quite hard to follow with the timeline jumping about and the distraction of the main character in a prosthetic old man mask. Maybe I’m being overly harsh on it because it dragged on so long.
