Outstanding Performance
7 July 2014 | by Lobke6See all my reviews

When you hear "Nickelodeon's Liz Gillies" it automatically wires your brain to think "horrible acting", which is understandable if you've seen some of the shows they put on their channel. However, in this case you couldn't be more wrong. Gillies' performance is near perfection in Killing Daddy (not unlike any other of her projects i.e. Victorious and Animal). Her acting makes it all seem so real and it really makes you feel what she's feeling- as other people have mentioned in their reviews- especially near the end. Not only is the acting above exceptional, but the plot is everything I've ever dreamed to have been. Killing Daddy is like a fanfiction story come to life, but not the shitty kind like 50 Shades of Grey came to be. It's a story that everyone can become interested in because we love the sick idea of it. It's always been in our imagination, but it's finally come to life. And even better than that, the movie is realistic. While watching, you will not roll your eyes at how "cheesy" or " predictable" it is. There's nothing cheesy nor predictable about it, there were twists and turns here and there, but at the same time they weren't so drastic to make you think it's stupid. If you don't believe me, watch the movie. You won't be disappointed!
