OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
These are some pretty mixed opinions. You have to be careful on these movies so you don't waste your time and money. I highly recommend that you read all the detailed opinions. There were quite a few negative comments that might help you make the right decision.
This is a typical example of an average movie. There were a few who really enjoyed it rating it "Excellent" to "Fantastic." There were a few who didn't care much for it rating it "Good" to "Poor." And the majority rated it "Very Good."
So, if you enjoy slow mystery movies, your probability of enjoying "Blood Work" is pretty high. If you require some action and suspense to keep you awake, you may not enjoy this movie very much.
