| Good effort but not up to standard
I loved the picture of the film. Scenes were great and well shoot. It looked really like a blockbuster movie.

I've found screenplay very cheesy; it sometimes sounded more theatrical than anything. Some lines were so surreal/fake that I felt like I should have stopped watching as do something better. I know, I may sound harsh, but I started watching this movie with high expectations, silly me! The screenplay was simply not good enough.

Acting was also a bit of disappointment, too. The 2 main actors were just OK, again, too theatrical at times. Some other actors (i.e. gangsters, flatmates..) were not really up to standard and seemed quite amateur.

I gave 3 stars out of 10 for the quality of images and scenes, which were really good, and the cause the movie is trying to promote, great effort there; if it was not for that, I would have given a 1.
