Yet another GOOD movie undeservedly panned by IMDb "experts"
29 May 2015 | by SashaDarkoSee all my reviews

While the story is so-so and has all the unnecessary clichés, it played out pretty well and not mind-numbingly stupid like most Hollywood flicks.

The acting is great (especially the performance of Fairuza Balk), actors behave like actual real people, you won't find any stupid blond chicks running around and screaming all the time. Cast is also great, actors really fit their roles. Directing and editing are well done. Soundtrack does it job, but can't say you will remember it.

I guess it can't be "all time favorite" movie, but it's certainly recommended for rental or having in collection.
