Movie Reviews

This is not a love song, nor a good film
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This film is very very disappointing. In the UK they sold it as the 'British version of Deliverance'. It was shot for half a million pounds, and it makes you wonder where all that money went? The film was shot on a digital camcorder (PD150) but I have seen other films shot on digital camcorders that are not only much better, but which have cost around 10 thousand pounds to make. If this film had been shot for 10 thousand I'd give it three stars and say it was a good effort. But for the money invested, this film really makes you feel cheated out of your money.The acting is pretty poor, and the direction is average. You have to bare in mind that the director shot the whole thing in 2 weeks, so she was obviously not going to produce her best direction. The script was a bit shoddy, but then that was also written in 2 weeks, so again you take it into consideration. I thought the photography and shot composition overall was pretty good, but at the end of the day this is a film, and as such, the story and acting is what matters, and they fall flat on their face.Overall, very disappointing."

"This film is well done: the storyline is gripping, dark and tragic; the acting is admirable; and the director clearly knew what he was doing. Still it's not a film for everybody as it is so morbid. You might like it just as well as you might not. I have mixed feeling about it but i have to admire it, regardless."
A drama/thriller with a great sense of dark humor and irony.

"If you?re into the downward spiral phenomenon then you will enjoy this movie intensely. The best part about the way this film is structured is that you forced into developing an intense connection with these two deplorable guys and end up rooting for them while doom hangs over their heads and hunts them through the bogy countryside. The acting by Cologan and Glenaan make this film a thoroughly worthwile and enjoyable experience. By all means check this one out."
