People say that this film is a copy of Ryde, produced in 2017. I haven't watched that film yet, so, I don't know whether the original is good or this one is good. Thus, I can only write review based on this film. No comparison.
The plot is really confusing. I mean I was watching blindly the whole time. I even thought that why Brandon and Steph are talking sweetly via phone calls and text messaging. And also in the Brandon and Judd's conversation, Brandon was okay and Steph is also talking normally with him. Then I realised that was the past when that scene where he's preparing to be Brandon and gets into bed and hug Steph came. It was all because of badly arranged scenes. They have inserted past scenes into present without showing clearly that past scenes are past and present is present. I mean they should have at least written very clearly that those scenes are past. But they didn't. Hence, it made me confused.
How confused? Let me give an example. People say that Mo Dao Zu Shi Chinese animation's present and past jumping is very confusing. They don't know which is present and which is past even when it was obviously written. After watching this film, I want to say to those people that come and watch this film. If you think Mo Dao Zu Shi's present and past jumping is very confusing, after you watch this film, Mo Dao Zu Shi will become nothing. It's just a child and this film is a grandfather in the terms of confusing level.
What I don't get is that why the film genre is horror and thriller. For thriller, I accept a little. A little even means very, very tiny. There's only one scene that makes me thrilled. That was the scene where Judd first appeared suddenly at the car window next to Brandon. But horror? I don't think so. There's nothing to do with horror. It's not frightening and doesn't have anything that makes this film put into horror category. Who the hell put this film into horror genre? If they put into drama, I might accept because the film is full of talking scenes and so, very boring. I only kept watching because I wanted to see the end. Horror, I disagree.
Furthermore, the last two scenes are very confusing. In the second last scene, Judd seemed to be dead, but he reappeared as a taxi driver Brandon. So, does it mean Judd isn't dead? I mean he should've died to give the audience some satisfaction. Now, I'm totally not satisfied.
Because of the presentation style, this film is kind of difficult to understand. If you want to get the whole plot, you will have to use your head and think yourself based on what they showed. So, yes, it's some kind of film that there's nothing when you think about it. But I like those kinds of films that let people to think.
Although this film is kind of boring and so confusing, there is something we could learn about setting passwords and codes. And also there is something hidden in the film that we all could also learn. So, if we look carefully, there is always something we can get as benefit(s) of watching films.
To conclude this review, if the director could make this film less boring and the editor made it a bit less confusing (by showing which is which very clearly), this film will be more enjoyable. Right now, all I get is a lot of confusing things. But thankfully, I could understand those.
