Wesley Lovell (WL): Deborah Ann Woll is the primary reason I’m interested. The secondary is that it could be interesting.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Looks like a moderately interesting teenage thriller but nothing you would want to go out of your way to see.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): It looks like a reasonably well made escape room film, it’s just that I’m not terribly fond of them.

Wesley Lovell (WL): An Asian adventure film could be fun or it could be painful. The quality consistency is uneven.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Apparently the Mojin books are popular in China, but nothing in the trailer remotely entices me to want to see this.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): A frantic trailer shows lots of action but very little plot. Probably for fans of the genre only, and really rabid fans at that.
