    This movie was honestly just offensive to anyone with any intelligence. It tried very hard to be mysterious but was about as subtle as a shotgun. It was very drawn out and boring, seemingly ending several times,, but the worst part is the end.

    Without spoiling it... the movie attempts to throw a big twist with some morally powerful message.... instead the message was incredibly

    First plot twist movie that has an ending that's not even close to plot twist and turns out just a public service announcement. Sadly I've watched it in theatre, waste of time and money.

    Long on atmosphere and short on sense, The Tall Man becomes less gripping as it grows more ridiculous.

    Spits out enough scares and twists to maintain our interest, but the film's psycho-sociological layer is almost as cheesy and unconvincing as its low-rent action scenes.

    Ultimately his story draws more energy from class than from criminality: awash in sludgy browns and rotting greens - the colors of poverty and decomposition - this unpredictable oddity is a little bonkers but a lot original.
