Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Worth a Watch
The movie was good and engaging. It's worth a watch. I actually enjoyed watching it a second time as you have a different perspective after watching the entire film and knowing the outcome. I bought the 4K release but since this film was shot entirely on the iPhone I don't think there was much improvement in the picture with the 4K release. If you can find the Blu-Ray release for a better price, that would probably be good enough for this one.
This is a solid B thriller from filmmaker Steven Soderbergh that is sure to appeal to audiences looking for an entertaining film. While the film is known more for its use of shooting entirely on the iPhone 7 Plus, the results are for the most part satisfying. The upgrade to 4K does benefit the film a bit more than the Blu-ray counterpart. Overall, I give this a 3.5 (rounded to 4) and comes recommended.
The movie itself was shot on an iPhone and while it looks good, I didn't see much of an upgrade on the 4K UHD disc over the Blu-Ray. The story was interesting and well-acted. Worth a watch. Purchasing a movie for me means that it warrants repeat viewings which this movie does. Watch it a 2nd time around to ask yourself, "is she crazy or not?" Your answer to that question may change each time you watch.
I’ve had trouble trying to get over the fact that this was filmed on a phone and looks weird. The story is plain and simple, pretty much spoon fed. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a good popcorn movie.
