TRUTH OR DARE MOVIE REVIEW

 Truth or Dare is directed by Jeff Wadlow and stars Lucy Hale, Tyler Posey, Violett Beane, Hayden Szeto and Landon Liboiron. The plot of the movie is a harmless game of Truth or Dare among friends turns deadly when someone or something begins to punish those who tell a lie or refuse the dare. I wanted to see this film because it is the same studio behind last years, Happy Death Day a movie that I thought was enjoyable it was not a great movie, but it could have been a lot worse.    On paper one of the strongest things about Truth or Dare is the premise that it has. The idea of being forced to either tell the truth or complete a dare no matter what it is. However, while I was watching this film I never felt any tension or any sense of fear.  When these people are being forced to complete these task the person who is asking them their face morphs into this big smile with these red eyes and I couldn't help but laugh every time that happened.  I also thought that several of these tasks were rather lame.    As these tasks were taking place I was thinking a way to improve this movie would be if it was rated R.  There was no point in this movie where I was having any fun. A lot if not all of the shock value was taken away because of the PG-13 rating.    There are a lot of scenes in which several characters ate googling and trying to figure out the origin of how this game started.   The best element of this movie was the character Olivia played by Lucy Hale. She has this really well defined arc and seeing her grow throughout the movie was one of the more compelling aspects of the film.    1 out of 5 stars for Truth or Dare. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
