It's not that McElroy hasn't crafted an interesting-enough storyline (in some respects, it's quite an OK plot) but more that he doesn't know how to engage his audience
Simply put...if you haven't read the script, don't blame the writer. Movies are rewritten, reedited, and scenes are often changed on the fly during production. If a movie is good, the writer gets no credit, if the movie is bad the writer is an easy target. Writers are routinely fired off movies or otherwise all but banned from the production process from start to finish. If you have something to say about the writing, find the original first draft of the script and speak to that. Otherwise look to the filmmakers who were there when the images were being captured, the actors were being directed, and the scenes were being printed and edited. Critics, give the writers a frigging break...
