Poor of ideas and presentation
12 February 2013 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Here's something almost enjoyable with many 1980's elements we all love to see on the screen but it just doesn't hold up all that well for too long, becoming very confusing and tiring to finally get to one conclusion: poor film.

With clichés being thrown at its audience in several directions, "Out of Bounds" is about a country boy (Anthony Michael Hall) who is sent to California to visit his older brother when a mix with the bags has him chased by the police and by dangerous drug dealers (parts of Jeff Kober and Raymond J. Barry) who are looking for the content in their bag (lots of drugs). His only help comes from a girl (Jenny Wright) he met on the plane and who'll try to find a way out of this situation.

The script isn't so terrible but it's deeply problematic. But everything's so unbelievable! All of sudden this well-mannered, almost shy kid with just a change of clothes can manage to be a hot shot who deals with the cool kids in town, or fire weapons at bad guys. There wasn't much time to dwell on his background but the very few given offers so little that you wonder where did he learn to survive in this concrete jungle armed to the teeth. It's a successful succession of blunders one after another in this story (the worse being when the drug dealer notices that the bags were changed. He's hold on a line, looks to someone carrying a similar bag and goes chasing the guy (which is the hero). Ridiculous moment. It entertains a little, offers some fine action sequences and invests a little in dramatic efforts.

The few merits of this goes to Anthony Michael Hall making a good pair with Jenny Wright, they were a good team escaping from the excesses common to flicks like this with those love/hate relationships, it's nothing like that in here. Best in the show was the detective played by Glynn Turman, very good acting. The guys playing the villains are trapped in the common place category: do the bad guy face, kill some people and that's it. Meat Loaf was reduced to two scenes and I couldn't understand why he was there anyway. Stewart Copeland found some good themes for the movie's score; there's a good-looking use of The Smiths in one funny scene after Hall's transformation of character; and there's a fun cameo from Siouxsie and the Banshees.

And an award should be given to the sound mixers and editors from this piece. The sound sucked terribly, worst sound mixing ever! The soundtrack and some of the dialogs are too in the foreground, highlighted but all the rest goes unheard, you can't hear the footsteps when the characters are running or walking. Lame.

It goes so fast at parts, so messy that the most awaited moment is for its ending to come because by that time it already became something you don't follow anymore. If nostalgia hits you well, go pick another movie from that glorious decade. This doesn't worth much of a curiosity really. 4/10
