The all appeared a bit strange, to be honest - an awful lot of FULL CAPS that are unnecessary - kind of distracted from the story - which, incidentally, I figured seemed to be quite good; it was just that I found it difficult going. I am guessing that this is a spec script, and that you don't have any interest from pro companies, yet it reads something more akin to a shooting script -- too much direction; too many camera angles etc etc. A spec script needs to be cleaner than this - a simple body of work to see if it's worth taking further.
You may have trouble getting many people to read your script. At 154 pages, it's far too long. Your logline is also too long, overly-detailed and lacks punch. And the fact that you don't review scripts gives no one reason to review yours. It's a quid pro quo thing.
