Tapping into the science fiction/psychological horror genre, "A Cure for Wellness" is a hit for some, but not all.

I recently saw the movie, “A Cure for Wellness”, and wasn’t exactly too pleased with the movie.

Billed as a horror/thriller film, it is directed by Gore Verbinski and written by Justin Haythe.

This movie is about a young, ambitious man who journeyed to the Swiss alps to retrieve his company’s CEO from a “Wellness Center”. He soon realizes this wellness center isn’t quite what it seems.

He seems to find his sanity being tested and he soon develops the same “sickness” that’s keeping everyone there.

The movie is filled with quite a few great actors, including, Dane Dehaan, Jason Isaacs, and Mia Goth. Though they all played their parts well, it just seemed like the movie didn’t exactly click.

It was constantly changing directions which tended to make things a little confusing.

I don’t necessarily think the movie was bad, just not put together as well as it could’ve been. If you’re someone who enjoys movies that you can’t quite understand, or you just can’t get right away, I really recommend seeing this.

Personally, I never really even understood the plot until the movie was over.

The other factor I didn’t necessarily like about the movie was how long it was. I would think the movie would be over but then another hour would pass by.

If you don’t want to see a time consuming movie, I wouldn’t recommend seeing this. But if you’re having a movie day and time isn’t an issue, this is the movie for you.

Although it wasn’t my favorite movie there were qualities about the movie that I did like.

For example, I liked how the plot was very odd in a way that made you interested in the movie.

The movie never got boring as there was always something going on. Lastly, I like how you could not predict what was going to happen later on in the movie; it was very complex.

Overall, I didn’t love the movie, but I didn’t hate it. It had qualities that I liked and qualities that I didn’t like.

Some people will see it and love it, and some people will see it and hate it.

It really depends on the person for a movie like this.
