Won't thrill adults or kids
17 September 2013 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

During its existence, the Canadian film company Filmline International made several attempts to make mainstream Canadian films, "Toby McTeague" being one of them. The movie doesn't seem to have received much of a release anywhere, and seeing it quickly explains why. Certainly, the movie looks surprisingly slick for a Canadian film - obviously some serious money was spent on this project. Also, it's the rare Canadian movie to clearly be set in Canada (though the Canadian references are few and kind of soft.) But the script is a mess. There's barely a plot, and long stretches of the movie unfold with little to nothing advancing the story. Also, most of the characters are surprisingly unappealing, the most guilty being the title figure, who is shown to be stupid and/or irresponsible on a number of occasions. And we're supposed to be rooting for him! It also doesn't help that the electronic music score is both strident and inappropriate for this kind of movie. Kids in the audience will be restless, and their parents will be annoyed.
