Out on bluray

Jedd Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2, Truth or dare, Never back down) delivers this dull 2020 a quite an entertaining film that if you watch it with zero expectations, you’ll end up enjoying yourself and having a good time.
It’s no masterpiece, but it ain’t garbage.

Due to all the bad reviews, I must say, I was skeptical about watching it, however, that took a drastic turn to the better once I sat down and saw for myself that it wasn’t as bad as many had painted it to be. Decent actors and well-known faces come together with an entertaining story leading up to a not so shabby plot twist.

Five guests have won a contest to a luxurious resort to live their most elaborate fantasies or to relive a moment they’d wish to have acted differently on. Once the set up is made slowly it starts to take a more grim turn, going from a daydream fantasy to a nightmare.

With stunning visuals of beautiful landscapes and waters, mundane costumes, and good sound, you’re in for a movie worthy of your time.
It has a semi-great script and quite a developed plot that took my movie companion and myself by surprise. Enough character development, showcasing a light background story to each persona, it had some laughable moments and some gasping ones. Not something I’d watch twice but definitely a recommendation. 5/10
