This movie was an "okay" watch. The best thing about the movie was the storyline {plot}. It was unique to me because I haven't seen anything pertaining to "what's really happening". It held my attention from the beginning until the end but it was held with confusion for about 20-25 minutes as I didn't really understand what was going on but the action and pace had me wanting to know more.

The acting by the cast was good but was mostly held together by the male and female lead. The supporting cast did a passable job.

The production of the movie was dark, dreary and a bit gory but not too much gore that would turn your stomach or have you looking away from the screen in horror but everything was just enough to get the storyline across.

The music and rewatch value obtain low rates because either the music isn't memorable or they didn't have and it's not that good of a movie to rewatch but it's good enough for a 1 time view.

I am a bit confused about the ending so it leads me to believe that it is a bit of an open ending. Are they or Aren't they type thing.

I have to say I was kind of let down by this movie, the main reason being I read the manga before and it is one of my favourites. It’s only two volumes but I advise anyone who liked the synopsis of this movie to read the manga ! (It’s a bit different but the big line is the same.)
If I hadn’t read it before, I most probably would have had a difficult time understanding what exactly happened in the first half. Moreover, the pace was a bit slow in my opinion. But the story is still interesting enough to watch the movie at least once.
