It is a kind of revenge slasher - from what i think ... similar to maybe "Saw". The bad guys are being punished. The problem with this kind of setup is that it is hard to feel bad for them. Granted, the collateral damage to innocents around them - and the severity of the punishment is arguably too much - but they are still a far cry from likable enough to care for them.

The reason for the revenge punishment is sooooo old, so predictable, so boooring. In my opinion - it might have been better if the guy stated that he was just a sadistic a**h**e, instead of the soppy origin flashback.

So in short - the story is very, VERY old, uninmaginative and HIGHLY predictable. In fact - i felt like i was able to predict a majority of scenes shortly before they happened - just based on previous movies that did it the same way.

The acting was average. A little overacting from the main protagonists - and all in all ... not very subtle.

Something that throws me out of any immersion - especially with movies set in our time - is when they use internet apps that are clearly meant to be a brand name, but cannot due to copyrights. So there is no google, no youtube etc. . For me... it could as well be ACME then - instead of some placeholder. (it is just a little thing, but it tend to bother me)

From a cinematography point of view. The camera works are not bad - but tend to display a little unnecessary CGI long-shots through windows and stuff. It feels like showing off - but at least it is not found footage.

My conclusion is a 3/10 - because the movie is not innovative, uncreative - and hence ... quite boring. There is NO suspense at all - none. And there is also no feeling of any kind of satisfaction.
