What a stupid idea for a movie.
27 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The film makers of God's Sandbox were obviously trying to make a ridiculous statement here. I won't spoil the story for anyone because you truly need to witness the stupidity of this movie for yourself to understand what I saw. (Save your money and wait for it to show up in the $1.99 rental section of you local video store.) This movie revolves around one horribly graphic scene. I'm still trying to figure out why people would invest money into a film like this. Yes I was shocked, yes I almost threw up. My question is, what was I or any of the other three people in the audience with me supposed to get out of this film? I guess this is the typical attempt for an aspiring writer or director to create a vehicle so they can attempt to go from film festival to film festival showing people how caring they are about atrocities around the world. When the whole idea is to create something that is shocking enough to attract attention. Why not do a movie about decapitating children? That's shocking right? Obviosly there isn't an aspiring film maker out there as tasteless as this one that can raise the money for that script.
