“Truth or Dare” was not one of the best movies I have watched. The story is about a group of friends who go to Mexico for spring break. One of the girls meets a guy who takes them to an abandoned church. They play the game of Truth or Dare as requested by the stranger. When the group finally goes back home, the game follows them and they need to keep playing. If you don’t tell the truth you die, if you don’t do the dare you die.

The movie did a decent job at making it suspenseful. The sound provided enough edge that it made it frightening to watch.

But although it was frightening, the movie was also very predictable. You knew what was going to happen before it did because of the scenes beforehand. It was very hard to be scared when you knew what was going to happen.

“Truth or Dare” is classified PG-13 and it was very obvious how the scenes that could have been rated R were covered. No gore was shown, but one time blood is seen spreading from the inside of a door. I believe the rating of the movie was very appropriate, although the was one sexual scene that didn’t show much.

It could be said that the target audience are mainly teenagers, young adults, or simply people who are not fans of extremely scary films, but enjoy the suspense.

I went into the theater with the idea that it was going to be a scary movie with many pop-ups, but it was a let down. A good comparison to “Truth or Dare” would be probably “The Sixth Sense,” but they are still rather different.

Overall, it was a decent movie with no gore, little horror, and a great effort for suspense. I wouldn’t watch “Truth or Dare” again because it was a very predictable movie, but I am satisfied with watching it once.
