| Wow! Seriously?...
This movie had potential to be good, no doubt about it, but it turned out as a ludicrous result. I wasn't nowhere near entertained by this movie, and it was solely because of a very poorly stitched together script and storyline.

The story is about an American mother who finds out that her son is held at ransom in South Africa. Traveling to Johannesburg, she sets out to find her son and bring him back to the USA.

Now, had that only been the storyline then "Lullaby" would have fared so much better, but no, that was not the case. I am not going to spoil anything here, but lets just say that I found this to be a boring and far too out there movie.

The acting in the movie was good, but it just wasn't nowhere near enough to salvage the movie, not by a long shot. But watching Melissa Leo rummage all over the slums of Johannesburg could only provide so much entertainment, and it got to be too much too fast.

No, this wasn't a particularly good movie in any way.
