There's absolutely no subtlety or nuance in the portrayal of the stepfather (or whomever he's supposed to be) - who is just a grotesque - and thus no real sense of conflict at the denouement - we're just thinking 'For Heaven's sake, get on with it, kid, so this film can end' (which he obligingly does). Lazy, unimaginative story writing. The camerawork and cinematography are good, and Cody is fine as Alex, but this can hardly make up for a narrative that is scarcely worth the telling.
