Audience Reviews for Ten Days' Wonder

Why couldn't it have been five days wonder? This movie isn't terribly long, but it felt like it was taking forever to get where it was going. I understand it's supposed to be a mystery and all, but there just seemed to be a lot of focus on things that weren't all that important to the story. Plus, the ending isn't all that surprising, I was a little disappointed. At least the actors are good, especially when they aren't whispering. Seriously, people needed to speak up in this movie. Overall, it's an okay movie, not too horrible, but not good either.
