Unfathomably bad...
19 December 2015 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

There is really just a single Word required to describe this movie, and that one word is: wow! "The Sandman" is bad in every possible aspect, spanning from the poor acting to the storyline. The movie is so amazingly slow paced and nothing even remotely interesting ever happened. I ended up quitting halfway through the torment that is "The Sandman". I just couldn't endure anymore of it.

The actors and actresses in the movie were either overacting to the point of becoming ridiculous and where even Jeremy Irons would say 'tone it down a bit', or they were simply performing as if they themselves didn't buy into the movie project.

As for the creature itself, the sandman, well just a single word is necessary again to describe it. And that word is: LOL. The creature was so ridiculous and anything but scary that it was almost embarrassing to witness.

I will never return to finish "The Sandman". It just had no appeal on any level and it was nowhere near entertaining at all. You should stay well clear of this movie by all means, because it is not worth the time, money or effort.
