Countdown – Thriller
Category – Movie
Content – Someone has created an app that you can download that will tell you the exact day you will die. Lots of people get 30-40 years later, but what happens to the people when the app says they have days to live? Somehow the app is right, and if you try and cheat your death, you break the terms and conditions, and death is eminent. I thought this was actually an interesting concept, and enjoyed the film. None of the deaths are overly gruesome, so this is definitely not a horror film in any way. Quinn has to figure out how to stay alive, and keep her sister alive as well! Overall, its a good concept and a fun film that you just cannot take too seriously. This scores a 5 out of 10.
Acting – There aren’t any huge names in this film, the one that sticks out the most if Peter Facinelli (our famous Vampire dad); although he isn’t in it too much. Elizabeth Lail is the lead and does a good job! And little Talitha Bateman from “Annabelle Creation” is growing up fast and doesn’t disappoint. Nothing overly special here, but certainly nothing overly bad either. It is a happy medium. Scores a 5 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 30 mins. 3 days to live takes 90 minutes to tell. The movie flows fine and this is a good duration of time for this film. This gets a 7 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Countdown – 17 out of 30
Recommended Watch – Sure, if you like thrillers and an interesting concept, it is fine to give it a go!
