| Not bad!
I saw this film for my acting class and we're going to meet the filmmakers next week, so I thought I'd share my views on it. As far as the story goes, it's extremely predictable. I'm not going spoil anything, but let's just say that if you watch a lot of movies, you can see the ending from a mile away.

With that being said, I did enjoy this movie and I can see how some may be turned off by it. There are unsettling images along with a controversial plot that shows how much our culture in America is different in Africa. The characters were fresh and not clichéd. As for those scumbag abductors, I'd love to see the tables turned on them because I guarantee that they wouldn't like it one bit.

Overall, it's a decent movie. I'm not going to lie to you, the reader, and say it's a terrible film but at the same time, it's no masterpiece. It's good enough to recommend it and I hope that it gets a theatrical release. Not to mention getting rated by the MPAA, no doubt it'll get an R or PG-13 rating. If you can handle the material for what it is and adapt to the pacing, you'll be glad you saw it!
