Director: S.K. Dale
Genre : Thriller, Suspense
Release date: Jul-01-2021
With little bit of nail biting scenes and edgy seat moments and with lot of boring situations Till death is a movie where you put it in neither bad or good position. Just another movie with good writing by Jason Carvey. Megan fox looked very pale for us in this movie with lot of makeup, so synthetic to see.
With most of the time being held in the hands of a murder and psyche husband, movie to be pushed purely into thriller genre with some revenge murder movie sort. Suspense is nevertheless a major winner too.
Being a story happening in whole cold place, whole shooting happened in Sofia, Bulgaria to take the advantages of the climate. Film is debut for director S.K.Dale and Screen media films produced movie. As impacted by Covid pandemic, movie released lately than projected.

Not a bad or good story for a thriller, but can be done with more exciting moments. Overall it felt Okayish for us rather having some uncomfortable and boring time for first 20 minutes as screenplay goes slower than imagined.
Rights and wrongs
Rights wise everything is okay as in handling perspective but we say movie has given us some good nail biting experiences and thrilling moments. Performances are good , all the departments did good job especially about creating set design and art work. Coming towards wrongs, first things we felt bad about is how unimpressive with silly moments being re drawn from so many thriller or horror movies we watched all along , should have tried new techniques. it felt regular all over the execution. Also length of the movie can be decreased instead of forcing with silly boring issues. With Megan there might be an advantage for pulling the audience but what if you have used a lesser level actor, then it would be failure of story and execution?. you know that. Some times the whole scenes looks so fake like a movie in a movie. Should have worked more on script.
Megan Fox really pull us most of the time with her performance. But that could not help us for escaping the boring moments. Callan Mulvey and Jack Roth pushed their levels to let the movie stand somewhere above average ratings. Aml Ameen and Eoin Macken though glittered just for moments, did fine. Jason Carvey should be appreciated but screen play could be much more tighter if they worked for more time we think. Locations are handled well. Walter Mair played major role with score, thankyou for that. Cinematography is fine and Art department handled by Ivan Ranghelov in such a good way. World wide VFX did nice job.
As we are working on newer graph system , we permanently shredding the existing graph pattern.
With most of the time enjoying the moments of thrills and chills, we put this movie at 6.5/10 rating, You could be entertained with this thriller but would not appreciate the movie to full extent.
