a thing about extras
3 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As many other reviewers here stated, there were some worthwhile concepts in this film, but the execution really held it back. I think it verifies the importance of good actors, to get viewers to "buy-in". Romero's "Night of the Living Dead" was a very low budget film, but it's truly great, in some measure due to the excellent lead actors. When acting is as stiff and wooden as in "Shatter Dead", it has the effect of ruining the illusion of the movie over and over, taking you out of the story.

But I wonder if anyone else, like me, watched the behind the scenes and blooper extras and wished they had liked the movie more? I've found that often with bad movies. It does humanize the actors and creators a bit, doesn't it? Especially for me here, when Scooter was talking through some of the bloopers with the "Howard Stern/Fartman" guy, and there was a sudden close-up of the actor's mouth saying "Fire!", which, as Scooter says, and any Star Trek fan knows, is that great shot of Kirk's mouth as he surprises Khan with a phaser barrage..."Alright it comes." I myself quote that little line with fan- friends, so that made me feel some kinship with Scooter, no matter how much his film kinda fails.
