I tried but...

If bullet points were a movie.... OMG.... It's like they took a bunch of key components that make for a really good suspense-drama and completely forget to incorporate any type of character development. The acting was "stage play" worthy at best which is sad coming from 2 actors who has been in the game as long as Omar and Nia. All-in-all... I guess I'll have to give it a 10 out of 10 on the CRINGE-O-METER... yeah... I just couldn't do it.

Typical story but the guy is the one who is obsessed. The love scenes were terrible. The acting was that great either. Expected better from Nia and Omar. Oh well...
