Violence is no longer important...?
2 September 2003 | by (Faro, Sv) – See all my reviews

The one thing that worries me most about this film; is the fact that the writer/director (Julian Gilbey) has at no point really researched any part of what he is actually trying to say. The films narrative is very, very loosely held together by the most silly and gratuitious violence - in particular, gun violence by very young British kids. The film is in no way offensive, but you get the impression (again, mostly by the use of the very young actors) that some kind of disturbed fantasy is really being played out; as opposed to the idea of just even producing some form of simple filmic entertainment. All the acting is directed with glazed and expressionless close-ups. The most bizarre violent scene happens near the start of the film where an actor with what appears to be an actual disability is murdered by repeated blows to the head with a batton. The reason I am writing this review (I don't normally review this kind of film) is that it disturbs me that others will watch it and think that the filmmaker's are in someway doing something right with modern-day cinema violence. In actual reality, they have nothing to say nor are truly interested in the medium as narrative and artistic-force. Films such as: 'Straw Dogs', 'A Short film About Killing', 'Bonnie and Clyde', 'Bully' and even Gaspar Noe's latest; all explore the violent themes 'Reckoning Day' has tried to do but severely failed. Reckoning Day's only surviving statement is that modern day film violence is both meaningless and unimportant. 1/10
