Movie Reviews

Real disappointing
Michael L. Wiersma | Springfield, MA United States | 04/05/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"The cover art for this flick is fantastic. It is the highlight of the film.

There is a nothing story about three guys into Internet porn, making music, eating, and hanging around looking beautiful in Speedos. There is a murder subplot, which is laughably filmed, like the rest of the movie. All of it is poorly done, poorly pieced together, and totally unsatisfying.

It might be worth a rental to check it out. I would suggest you keep your finger on the fast forward button. No need to read the subtitles; the dialog barely matters. Generally, I'd recommend investing my time in something else."
Disappointing w/ meager story

"This was not a good film. The premise is less interesting than it sounds and the thin strands of story aren't plausible or that interesting. While the acting was ok (not great) and there were some attractive men on screen, it just wasn't a good enough storyline to be interesting. The central event that provides the conflict for the plot is somewhat confusing and the connection of the two lovers not believable.
I think this studio can do better."
I am LONGING for this film to have a plot!

"This film basically sucks! There is one incredible looking young German guy (Erik) that is awesome to watch and he's the only reason I stayed with this thing through to the end. Amazon's editorial review was extremely misleading. It would imply that "Saved by the Bell's" A.C. and Zach were in this film and locking lips and loins on the white beaches of Brazil. If that took place even remotely in this film, I totally missed it. The cast is made up of three German guys, one of which as I already stated is BEAUTIFUL, and the acting appeared to be fair, if you could understand what was supposed to be happening. The actors done good with the very poor script they were given to work with, especially the lead actor who accidentally murders a man in self defence. The potential was definitely there throughout this thing, but it didn't even attempt to live up to that potential.

The music sucked bigtime! The subtitles were difficult to understand, and there needed to be subtitles for the very poor English parts of the film that the viewer is expected to understand. A very hard film to follow, and where it leads is not a place you will enjoy going. Right when it appears there is finally going to be a plot, the movie ends suddenly with a "no ending" end. Beautiful Brazilian landscape and hot young actors are about all this film has going for it. I have no idea who was longing for something or what they were longing for. Thus the name "The Longing" was ill conceived at best. I do not recommend this one, unless you simply want to see some nice footage of a very gorgeous young blonde German boy that is super hot. If only they would show more than 3 seconds of him nude, it might make this film worth the buy."
Nice Cover

"I think if I brought a couple of the cuties home from the bar, pulled out my camcorder, went on an exotic vacation, and used my Pinnacle editing program, I could have made a better movie. Cute guys, the rest was a mess."
