If the ambition is to provide two hours of instantly forgettable, popcorn-munching escapism, it succeeds.
This is one of the few movies I've ever seen where the whole audience broke into spontaneous, loud applause a third of the way in.
The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one
Strong acting helps the film overcome an uncertain premise and create characters that hold our attention absolutely.
