Return to Sender (2015)
Starring: Rosamund Pike, Shiloh Fernandez, Nick Nolte
Release Date: August 15, 2015
Rating: 1/5

Summary: When Amazing Amy, I mean, a small town nurse goes on a blind date things take a turn for the worst when he turns out to be now who he says he is.

My Thoughts: Here is the prime example of a perfectly good thriller that starts of with a BANG! and then fizzles out and finally, it leaves you with an ending that has you thinking, but not about much because this movie wasn't much to start with.

When I first saw that Rosamund Pike was in it, I was very, very excited. She was great in Gone Girl and once she got into her element in this film, it started to become a good film. She is literally was drives this film forward, not because of the lack of actual characters in the film, but because she was one of the only ones who brought something to the film. Well, her and her father. Their relationship is another thing that I enjoyed about the film, again, because it drives the movie forward, but the fact that these are the only things that kept me watching were a giant waste of such great talent. The writing was good, yes, and so was the direction, but the movie itself was just a letdown. Very shitty, Lifetime movie-esque.
 

 After the initial event, there's literally nothing happening. You spend most of the film waiting for something to happen and when I say that, I mean literally most of the film. And when that something does happen, which I'm just going to say is the ending, you're left in a little bit of disbelief because it happens out of nowhere. There's nothing building up to it. It's just brought out of nowhere and you're left to think about it. 

It's watchable, but only if you're patient. Return to Sender is basically a kind of crappy Lifetime movie with some big names attached to it. And the star's abilities are wasted on a bad script and bad just overall bad plot.
