Who will be left on screen and who will be left on the cutting room floor?
21 April 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Watching Urban Legends: Final cut made me sure of one thing. As a director, John Ottman is one hell of a composer. Think that seems a bit harsh? Watch the movie and then get back to me. It's one of those films you may have heard of before now, with people warning you of just how bad it is, and you can't believe it's quite THAT bad. Well, it is.

This time around the action takes place at a film school and there's a movie being filmed about a killer who uses urban legends as part of his M.O. However, getting the film finished proves to be quite problematic, thanks to the small problem of an actual killer killing off many of the people involved.

To be fair, the faults don't all lie with Ottman. The biggest failing is the poor, lazy script by Paul Harris Boardman and Scott Derrickson. It's one of those horrible horror scripts that gets rid of people left, right and centre without anyone involved ever really noticing (the leading lady asks about a missing "actress" but that's about it). It also thinks it's being clever at times when that cleverness is completely wasted in the quagmire of sewage that the rest of the movie is made up of.

The cast are okay. Anthony Anderson is his usual boisterous self, Eva Mendes probably wants to wipe this one from her CV, Loretta Devine returns from the first movie and actually provides more entertainment this time in contrast to everything else going on and the great Hart Bochner is as great as ever. Sadly, Jennifer Morrison and Matthew Davis in the lead roles are two of the blander folk on screen and can't carry the audience through the many weaker patches.

Ottman shows one or two moments of aptitude but, for the most part, he seems to buckle under and drown in the growing mountain of hokum that develops on screen. I almost felt sorry for him. Almost. At least he didn't necessarily have to watch the bloody thing.
