Blunt Reviews Presents: A Long Way Down (2014)

a long way down

This film intrigued me for about thirty minutes, it was different and appeared to have the backbone to address heavy topics without flinching. However I soon found that it morphed into a typical cheesy story about love, friendship and second chances, becoming over sentimental and losing the nerve to finish walking the road it started on. With characters that become increasingly irritating it’s difficult to follow them on their journey and hope for a happy outcome because there’s only so much of their bullshit behaviour you can tolerate. Toni Collette is superb, but even she can’t salvage a sunken ship.
