“Personality? What personality?”
The film wastes little time setting the tone and getting into a groove that viewers might be able to get behind and cling to for the whole runtime. That said, the non-linear approach to telling the story actually impedes the film rather than complimenting it. Additionally, the characters and tension begin to feel like they’re going through one-note repetition from incident to incident. The potential engagement is there, but too much of the conflict and “rising action” feels like a flatline.
