Remember: It's Television

Yes, we watched enthralled; at least the last episodes. We felt it was
too much special effects, all too moody music, and way too much time
wasting melodrama. Knowing we had a four hour stretch to weary our way
through, we took our time until we knew we were near the denouement, at
which point we watched more closely and could then feel the excitement
But remember: it's television. Television is made in an entirely
different way, no matter the artistic ambitions. This would never work
in a watered down two hour format at the theatre - it just plays as
television. If you're all right with television, fine; if television
leaves you flat and wanting to see real cinema instead, this 'movie'
will leave you flat too.
The device of this movie demands a 'conceit' - and a consequent
suspension of disbelief - that you either buy into or else you won't
like the whole thing much.
After a night of sleep we woke mostly feeling we'd wasted our time.
It's not so much the movie makers' fault - remember: it's television.

Well done I had gone to the local video store to do a exchange because
the night before we got Once upon a time in Mexico and trust me I don't
return movies unless they really suck.Anyway I asked about 5 Days to
midnight and the clerk said well it was not renting too good but what
the heel I took it anyway and we were really surprised even though it
was in 4 parts but at that my wife and I watched the first 2 and went
to bed the first thing in the morning she says coffee is on I'm taking
our daughter to school and you can walk the dog and then we can finish
the movie.And I'm glad I took a chance I would have to say this film
kept us thinking right up until the end,I hope Lions gate has more of
that suspenseful talent lurking around at their studios in the
future.Thanks for a great film.
