Midnight Special (2016)

With big name stars and prime spot on HBO,
This film might appear, as a hidden gem,
And after watching it, I can now stay,
How can I get 1.5 hours, of life back again?

Ok – basically a kid has special powers,
and two guys are driving him around for protection,
But they forgot to say, where they are going,
What are his powers, and why any of this deserves our attention.

A plot missing acts, setup or even basic points,
this movie encourages little reflection
(Meh) night special, or Midnight (Not So) Special,
Widely misses the mark, whatever its intention.
