Review: 4 Stars
Truth Or Dare was a film that I have wanted to see ever since I saw the first trailer for it. I love Lucy Hale and the Snapchat smiles that characters got when asking ‘Truth or dare?’ looked creepy. I loved the idea of a horror twist on the sleepover game truth or dare. I am glad to say that the movie was actually better than I expected. Although it wasn’t that scary, I thought it was pretty brilliant.
The plot was pretty awesome. It was filled with suspense. As the game took turns with each character I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the next turn to be taken. There were a few well timed and unexpected twists thrown in. While I didn’t find the movie that scary, I loved the plot. The reason behind the game and why the group was forced to play it was a little lame, but I loved the actual game.
The acting was great all around. Obviously as a fan of Lucy Hale I think she was great as the lead, but I also think that the supporting cast did great. The script was written really well too, which helped bring the movie all together. There were a few awesome one liners in the film that were delivered perfectly.
The truth or dare game seemed designed to tear friendships apart by exploiting weaknesses and secrets, but also to cause chaos, all of this made for a knockout film. I loved that the game wouldn’t let the players pick truth every time, because it made for a really interesting game. Although I hated the scene that explained the reason why they were forced to play the game, the actual game made for an intense story line. The ending was absolutely brilliant as well. Truth Or Dare is a movie that you won’t want to miss.
