Virtually Unwatchable
26 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've noticed a lot of technical attributes can be missing from movies and they can still be viewable, even entertaining in one merit or another. As long as there are one or two key elements that are done well.

Unfortnately this movie fails on every level, most importantly in direction, editing, and acting. To a lesser degree in special effects, and cinematography.

The pacing is absolutely stagnant. There were many scenes where abominable exchanges in dialog that had nothing to do with the main plot would weigh the picture down, and left me squirming uncomfortably as I waited for something worthwhile to happen.

One can overact in a movie, and make it entertaining. William Shatner is a prime example of how much fun watching a ham can be. Underacting however, will kill a movie. Once again this movie excels in the stagnant. The cast seems to at most recite their lines, lacking any conviction or even personality for that matter. Emotional responses required by the script came off as shy and subdued. I think directional ineptitude is largely to blame for this.

Anyway, I think New World is a shining example of the spread of affordable film-making tools to the masses. Just because one has the tools by no means suggests one has the talent.
