The movie has really good visuals and atmosphere, but, the music, acting, and script were off.
To start off the concept has been done before, criminals attempt to enter a home to kidnap someone for ransom and things go awry. This movie's take on that idea is pretty good. The surprise in store for the criminals is pretty scary and I gave it a four star rating just for that. There is also a few nude scenes in the movie if you are into it. (I wouldn't let my kids watch it.)
Where the movie falls apart most drastically is the music, none of the music goes with the atmosphere and scenery. The music itself was great but, not with this movie. It was also very loud and annoying in contrast to the volume level of the rest of the movie. I took off three stars for the music alone.
The last three stars I took off were for the plot that was everywhere and seemed directionless. The actors and their lines were way too melodramatic to the point that the movie seemed like it was a horror movie trying poorly to be a comedy.
I could not in good conscience recommend renting this movie from Amazon like I did. I feel like it was money wasted on a movie that wasn't properly edited. This could have been a dang good movie with a bit more editing.
