Review: The story has interesting potential, but the trailer barely gives that concept life. The whole thing looks hopelessly generic, when it shouldn’t feel that way at all.
It has the feel of a Civil War escape drama that could gain the Academy’s attention, but there are no major names involved and the early release would suggest that it’s not a likely contender.
