Devil’s Knot movie review: well-worn tracks

9 May 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Atom Egoyan is all over the real-life case of American injustice surrounding the West Memphis Three. But sadly, I’m not sure why. I’m “biast” (pro): I’ve been following the real-life story depicted here for many years; love the cast and director

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Atom Egoyan, who is a pretty amazing filmmaker — his The Sweet Hereafter must be one of the saddest, wisest movies ever made — is all over the case of the West Memphis Three… and, sadly, I’m not sure why. The real-life story is already a notorious modern anti-classic of American injustice, thanks to an ongoing online campaign and four documentaries — Paradise Lost trilogy and the recent West of Memphis — devoted to the plight of the three men who, as teens, were convicted of the supposedly Satanic murders of three little »

The Last Days On Mars review

14 April 2014 2:59 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Mark Harrison 15 Apr 2014 - 06:37

A horror movie set in space? Mark reckons you might find some of the various components of The Last Days On Mars a little familiar...

It wouldn't have been hard to slap a “The Thing Meets Gravity” or a “28 Days Later in space” strapline on the marketing campaign for The Last Days Of Mars, but it's arrived with markedly less fanfare than most mainstream horror movies released this year, pushed back from its intended release last September.

The film is a nuts-and-bolts sci-fi horror flick that played out of competition at last year's Cannes film festival, during directors' fortnight, but it's the interesting way in which it's been executed that marks it for such distinction, more than any real sort of innovation or unpredictability.

Based on The Animators, a 1975 short story by Sydney J. Bounds, the film takes place over the last 19 hours of »

The Last Days on Mars review: There's little life on this Mars...

12 April 2014 4:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Ruairi Robinson; Screenwriter: Clive Dawson; Starring: Liev Schreiber, Elias Koteas, Romola Garai, Olivia Williams; Running time: 98 mins; Certificate: 15

When a viral infection breaks out in a science fiction movie, you know the prognosis. Lots of rabid growling, black eye shadow and homicidal rampages are inevitable. Herein lies the fundamental problem with Last Days on Mars - the script's staggering overfamiliarity is an insurmountable obstacle for the impressive cast and debutant director.

The movie's timing is impressive, with Nasa recently announcing their plans for an unmanned test flight later this year for Orion - a spacecraft designed to fly to Mars. Hopefully the first person to set foot on the red planet will have a more positive experience than viewers of this movie, which fails to make one small step in the direction of originality, instead taking one giant leap into genre cliché territory.

The Last Days On Mars Review

11 April 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Excluding Total Recall, movies that involve Mars seem to be generally quite rubbish. Will The Last Days On Mars buck the trend and turn out to be something enjoyable? Sadly, the answer is a resounding no. Think Alien meets The Walking Dead and you’ll start to get the vibe about this movie. Nothing wrong with taking influence from those two amazing productions. Alien had people on the edge of their seats as it ramped up the tension scene after scene. And The Walking Dead brought incredible characters and great writing. Both productions also brought amazing antagonists to the table. Unfortunately though, The Last Days On Mars can’t hold a burnt out candle to either. Starring Liev Schreiber, Elias Koteas and Romola Garai amongst an other wise unknown cast, it follows the story of a bunch of astronauts who succumb one by one to a mysterious infection after one »

Running Time: 98 minutes.

Certificate: 15.

Synopsis: A group of astronaut explorers succumb one by one to a mysterious and terrifying force while collecting specimens on Mars.

The Last Days On Mars revolves around the first manned mission to the red planet, presumably set sometime in the near future. In literally the final hours of their six-month long mission, a group of astronauts make a groundbreaking discovery: fossilised evidence of bacterial life.

Liev Schreiber is currently experiencing somewhat of a career surge. Always a great supporting actor (showing up in the likes of X-men Origins, The Manchurian Candidate »

The Last Days On Mars' cast list is a spoiler in itself

6 April 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

It's no Moon or Solaris instead the fates of the characters in this forumlaic sci-fi are determined by its stars' relative fame and bankability

I had high hopes for The Last Days On Mars. All of the signs were good. In the United States it's distributed by Magnet Releasing, owned by that creepy overdog Mark Cuban but still importing a nice line of eccentric non-American B-movies, both good (Down Terrace) and bad (Donkey Punch), mixed in with a Malick and a Von Trier here and there. And look at this cast: Liev Schreiber, Olivia Williams, Elias Koteas no lightweights there. Makes you suspect that there might be a decent script in there somewhere, harbouring enough juicy, lysergic, mind-bending ideas to make up for the budgetary shortcomings. Perhaps I was hoping for something like Duncan Jones's soulful, melancholy Moon or maybe Soderbergh's ice-blue Solaris (I wasn't fool enough to expect »

The movie tells the true story Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley, who were wrongly convicted for the May 1993 killings of three 8-year-old boys from West Memphis, Ark. 18 years later they were finally released from prison.

Atom Egoyan dramatizes the fallout from the notorious 1993 West Memphis murders, focusing on the grieving mother (Reese Witherspoon) of one of the murdered boys as she grows increasingly troubled by the lynch-mob fever that grips the town. »

The West Memphis 3 Dramatised In ‘Devil’s Knot’ Trailer

10 March 2014 3:25 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Devil’S Knot tells the unfathomable true story of the murder of three young boys and the conviction of three other boys despite a lack of evidence. World renowned as the West Memphis 3, the story has continued its momentum over the last two decades due to unprecedented coverage in the form of three documentaries which made up the Paradise Lost trilogy as well as West Memphis. The three boys accused received an outpouring of support from the likes of celebrities including Metallica and Johnny Depp, but no amount of pressure seemed enough. The boys (now men) were eventually released in 2011 after entering an Alford Plea.

Now it’s time to see the case brought into the world of dramatic reenactment from director Atom Egoyan. His adpatation of the novel Devil’S Knot will explore the case using hindsight, as a lawyer (Colin Firth) becomes the only one willing to stand up for the accused. »

New Trailer for Devil’S Knot Starring Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth

10 March 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

A new trailer for director Atom Egoyan’s real-life drama Devil’s Knot has been released online.  The film is based on the story of the West Memphis Three, who were wrongfully accused and convicted of the murder of three young boys in Arkansas in the 1990s.  Reese Witherspoon stars as the mother of one of the victims while Colin Firth plays a private investigator hired to look into the defense case.  I caught the pic at Tiff last fall and found it to be a massive disappointment.  The film has no real focus and the performances—by talented actors, mind you—are bafflingly atrocious.  Moreover, the story of Witherspoon’s character verges into exploitation territory. Hit the jump to watch the trailer, and click here to read Matt’s review.  The film also stars Alessandro Nivola, Stephen Moyer, Dane DeHaanMireille EnosBruce GreenwoodElias Koteas, and Amy Ryan. »

What's It About? Based on the memoir by Solomon Northup, "12 Years a Slave" stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as a free man who was kidnapped from his home in New York and sold into slavery. Northup ends up on a plantation run by the cruel Edwin Epps (Michael Fassbender) and his equally awful wife (Sarah Paulson), who take special delight in tormenting another young slave named Patsey (Lupita Nyong'o).

Why We're In: The movie took him Best Picture Sunday night -- see director Steve McQueen quite literally jump for joy here -- for good reason. Nyong'o took home the Best Supporting Actress award for her wrenching performance, and John Ridley won for his adapted screenplay.
