Audience Reviews for Children... (A-i-deul...)

After "Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy", "Karla" and "Conviction", when I stumbled upon one more movie of the (similar) genre, I simply couldn't resist myself from "going for it". Looking on the greener side (a bit unusual for me), I'm glad that I could use the phrase "going for it" instead of "falling for it". Yeah, the movie's good, but it had much more potential than what it is... all the more when the makers have preferred to present it as "a movie based on real events" rather than in a documentary style. It seemed like the director was immensely influenced by "Memories Of Murder" and couldn't let go of it while making this one. Unfortunately, it serves as a con instead of pro here. [Might add a wee bit more later, although the chances for it stand to be far less than negligible as of now.] Disclaimer: The above comment is based solely on my (ever honest) opinion and the fact may not be remotely related to it.
