Escalating drama, but out of character
Review of Bad Company (1999) movie, by Stefan Stenudd
Caroline meets those who do not age, and this ability can be transmitted. But there are grisly downsides. Click the image to see the book at Amazon (paid link).
It could work, in the same way a good thriller can take a long time before the horrors emerge — but it doesn't, not at all, because the development of the plot is simply not plausible in the characters.
There is nothing in them, which convinces me that they would get themselves into that mess. Nor is there anything about them revealed in the second half of the movie, which would bring light to the sudden change.
It's like two movies in one, or maybe even three or four. One or two of them could be good, left alone, but not a chance when they're messed up with each other.
