A bit dull, was checking my watch at halfway point
4 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I just didn't get drawn into the plot of this film. They characters were uninteresting, and although the plot was uplifting, it didn't feel very engaging at all. The sound track however was very good, which is why I gave it a 2/10 instead of 1. Overall, I feel like it was just like any movie with only child actors - the acting and story wasn't enough to get me to the edge of my seat.
