The movie is low budget, the writing is shoddy and the acting is okay. It's nothing special. I tried very hard to watch this movie. I read the reviews that were very positive and took a chance on it and really regretted my decision to watch it.
It has a lot of promise, the sound effects were spot on, the B roll was excellent but the movie really disappoints in the A roll, the acting and the editing. I became really frustrated with the way the A roll was shot for this movie. In the first 10 minutes of the movie they don't consider framing to be important, so things that need to be wide angled are shot closely and things that are shot closely are wide angled. It makes no artistic or functional sense.
There's a dialogue scene in the first 10 minutes where the main character is speaking to another influential character and the acting is just....poor. There is no tension, there is no real emotion being shown, it's like they told the main actor to act conflicted and he took that to mean act as if he was constipated! The line delivery in that conversation was so poor, the timing so bad, I wonder if the person who cast these roles even cared!
Then there's the editing. Oh God, the editing. In that same conversation they switch the A roll (primary shots) between the two characters for every line they speak. For roughly 3 minutes you have the camera going right-left, left-right, back and forth for every....single....line of dialogue, without any transition, it's almost all straight cuts. They do use L and J cuts but sparingly. If you're epileptic and can be triggered, I'd avoid this movie at all costs.
I'll try to watch it again, because I've never felt the need to write such a negative review of a movie before. I want to be fair to the people who worked on this movie, but from my first watch, it was terrible.
