A Waste of Time
29 April 2009 | by (boston mass. usa) – See all my reviews

I really did not like this film. It put me on edge for the entire 90 minutes and its ending was confused and unresolved.I think the major problem with it is its screenplay.Key scenes, pivotal plot moments, are thrown away by the director's nonsensical choices.One minute he's filming "This Boy's Life" and the next he's making a horror film.The lead boy actor says very few things and we really are not given access to empathy for him, and the key character of Frank was badly miscast. That actor seemed to think he was the lead in a vampire movie or something;"Beware, beware, when you least expect him.... Frank is there." What a mess. So many good films out there; don't waste your time on this one. PLEASE don't ask me how it got all those film fest awards; I just cannot imagine.
