    Do not recommend
    The plot had potential but I was disappointed because the movie just really failed to capture and keep my attention. I ended up skimming over a lot of pointless drawn out scenes. None of them felt suspenseful like they should have.

    Several reviews said the acting was great but I don't see it. It's mediocre at best. I didn't feel anything for any of the characters, even the lead.

    The script and "plot twists" were fairly predictable. The action parts and the ending fell flat because I didn't care about any of the characters except for the little girl. I'm giving it a 3 because the idea behind it was good and it's definitely not the worst thing I've seen. But I wouldn't recommend this or bother to watch it again.

    it takes a turn, then takes another turn.. ended up in the same spot
    During a blizzard, college girl stuck in this cabin with some strangers and find a kidnapped girl in a van. Then the college girl (and all the character) starts to made a string of poor choices. Shocking, i know. The general premise of No Exit though not groundbreaking, sounds interesting. At first glance, it seems like it's gonna be a whodunit mystery-thriller, but then things takes turns, and another turn and another, and another... you get what i'm saying. Good on paper, bad on practice. Though some of these turns are fun and bold, it makes this film messy.

    You would think with all these 'plot twist' that the ending would be somewhat unpredictable, right? Wrong. The ending is as generic as it can get. Overall, No Exit has a very weak script, dull-cringeworthy-professional poor-decision-maker characters. I guess the highlight of this film is some of the gore are pretty gory... (ba dum tss), the acting is decent, the run time and the pace are adequate.

    It's a mindless insomnia watch, but definitely skippable 5.8/10.
