No but it didnt turn me off. It was handled fairly well. The rest of the movie is pretty good.

That movie is freakin good.
The Kid Detective (2020)
7/10

"A once-celebrated kid detective, now 31, continues to solve the same trivial mysteries between hangovers and bouts of self-pity. But a naive client brings him his first adult case -- to find out who brutally murdered her boyfriend."

Entertaining film, fresh with organic humor though not especially situational humor. Not an easy film to genre-ize, but I would call it a mystery-com. It's not very funny, not a great mystery, not a thriller and not suspenseful. Likeable characters but not to the extent of investing in the stakes. The ending reveal was rather brief and not as exciting as it should have been, not totally satisfying.

Next is one of those movies where I remember hating the ending and feeling cheated. There is a horror movie with a similar twist I recall reviewing around here with one of The Descent actresses. The context in that one was better I think.

I guess that's one thing streaming services have up on videostores. Once you rented something, you feel more compelled to finish it.
I remember reviewing this one. It wasn't better than Cube to me but it was kind of passable I think. At least I wanted to see the sequel. I thought the ice trap was the best one.

Do you have a website for the location we can check out? I've never been to one but I like the concept. I never thought Cube type places were real until I saw Escape Room.

I thougt it was hilarious.
Clue wise I believe the viewer don’t have a chance guessing. And yes, the ending could have been more climactic and suspenseful. But i really liked the story and most of all the main character/actor.
