Nothing makes a movie stupider than "revealing" a big twist at the end that you were aware of the entire time and had no idea you WEREN'T supposed to be aware of.
I haven't seen the film but I heard about it. It just sounds like a wacky idea that does not work. For the record, it does not take place at a regular ATM machine like what you'd see outside a 7/11. Rather, it's in a big booth that looked to be about 20 X 20 and has a few ATM machines in it. At least that's what I saw when I watched the film's trailer.

Earlier in the month I finally saw Frozen. As I've mentioned before I really did not care for the first Hatchet besides the gore. The second was better but the most memorable aspect was that I was one of the few who saw it on the big screen and me and 23 other people got to experience Kane Hodder there and before AND after the film he did a Q&A, which was really interesting.
This movie, though, is more to my tastes. While I did not always have a lot of sympathy for the three leads (as they acted like douches at times and they mainly brought upon themselves the bad situation they ended up in) it otherwise was an entertaining and engrossing movie where there's a lot of dialogue and talking but much of what was said was interesting and thus I never got bored; plus, the acting was fine and the few grossout moments you got worked due to what they were and how well they were done. I mean, they made me cringe.
I also greatly appreciate how it was actually filmed outdoors and the shots you got were from Green himself and another guy in a cherry picker high up in the air. That made things authentic and not fake.
