A Snake By Any Other Name
6 December 2005 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly disagree with the previous reviewer. Whether one is a believer or not, the protagonist played by Mark Rose is a real snake. He's looking for some kanoodling with a girl he's set his sight on and so he soaks up a lot of Christian lingo to impress her. She unfortunately buys into his rap. For those of you interested in seeing how successful he was in a physical sense, see or buy this film.

In this shoestring budget film we're not going to see any great acting or believable sets. Attractive people though, always.

One thing I did like about this film. It's left quite up in the air about what the future holds for our protagonist. Being a hedonist is one thing, being a hypocrite and a liar is quite something else.

And you don't have to be a Christian to figure that out.
