"Moonlight 2.0"
10 March 2019 | by peto_estebanSee all my reviews

A film about nothing, i mean, which part of the whole story is remarkable enough to make a movie about it? It´s just filled with a lot of unnecesary scenes, that doesn´t have impact on the storyline. For example, the earthquake scene (doesn´t even count as a spoiler), what is the point of it? Nothing happens after it, it is just for doing a camera panning? Like that one, there are at least 8 thinhs that happens in the movie with cero impact. It is really frustrating, you finally see something is going to happen, and five seconds later, nevermind nothing happened. Amazingly boring story, i´m having a hard time imagine how people enjoyed this, besides of the camera work, and the cinematography, which in my opinion, is just not enough.
