Time and again the movie fascinates us with digressions, only to jerk back to the helpless main story line. ( Read More )
Switchback plays as entertaining, if not quite classic, dramatic fare. ( Read More )
Audiences have gotten used to thrillers not making sense, but SwitchBack really doesnt make sense. ( Read More )
messily written and surprisingly poorly acted... the pursuit is a yawn a minute, leading to a climax that would be laughable if it werent so dull. ( Read More )
