Dark Water is as clear as Evian in the hot sun
23 August 2001 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure, yes, pleasure, of seeing this movie recently - the underlying story line itself is an intriguing subject - vigilante justice and just how far would one go to avenge others? I was most interested in seeing just how this would be handled and in which direction the writers would take us. Overall it wasn't a horrible film, certainly not quite as bad as the critics seemed to think. At times it seemed that the witty remarks came from too much concentrated effort rather than from spontaneity, the lines sometimes contrived and the dream sequence was extremely bizarre.

The circular route in the beginning didn't really serve much purpose for setting the story other than to let us know that David was a disturbed individual.

There was a bit of a lag in the middle of the movie but overall it was worth seeing. The twist at the end was a good touch though not a complete surprise, I think audiences now expect to see such twists.

The acting in some parts seemed too well rehearsed, the cameos however, were quite spontaneous in their feel.

This movie had a lot of potential, too bad it was not captured and portrayed to it's full extent.
