Movie Review: Truth or Dare

Truth or Dare is one of those films you keep watching in hopes that it’ll get better, only to be disappointed as each scene passes, until finally, when the end comes, you want to throw the remote at the TV.

It’s that disappointing.

It’s not even too scary or suspenseful. There were a few laughable moments. The main antagonist looks like Joker. There is no resolution to the problem. There is almost no character development. The heroine has no redeeming quality, starts off as seemingly nice, then proves herself selfish till the end and beyond.

Maybe to prepare the viewers for a sequel?

Truth or Dare is currently streaming on Netflix.

Synopsis/Plot Summary (from Universal Pictures and IMDb)

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.

Olivia Barron, her best friend Markie Cameron, Markie’s boyfriend Lucas Moreno, along with Penelope Amari and her boyfriend Tyson Curran, and Brad Chang go on a trip to Rosarito, Mexico. In Mexico, Olivia runs into fellow student Ronnie who proceeds to harass her until a man intervenes on her behalf. The man introduces himself as Carter and eventually convinces her and her friends to join him for drinks at the ruins of a mission. There, Carter initiates a game of Truth or Dare with Olivia and her friends, plus Ronnie, who followed the group. Eventually, the game ends when Carter reveals that he deceived Olivia as a means of tricking her and her friends to the mission to offer them in his place in the supernatural game of Truth or Dare. As Carter leaves, he explains to Olivia that the game will follow them and they must not refuse it..
