Starts INCREDIBLE ends horrible.
18 April 2004 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This movie has a simple yet interesting plot.

Throughout the entire movie, there are at least two different sections, or screens, of the movie screen showing two different angles from two different video cameras of the same scene. Some scenes had four or five, with a few screens shwoing memories that the characters were recounting.

This video style was done, on the most part, really rather well, and the editing was done well too. However, I left the theatre with a serious case of motion sickness; there is simply way TOO MUCH slow-motion shots, and i mean TOO MUCH. It was almost insulting, sometimes all there was on the screen was stop-frame slow-motion.

Asides from that, there was about a fifteen minute bridge three quarters into the movie, where literally NOTHING happened - it was just fifteen minutes of showcasing multi-angle screen-by-screen techniques.

I think that if you're going to use such a bold technique as this, the plot should be just as bold and interesting.

During the first half of this movie, I was so engrossed and captivated by it that I doubt I blinked a single time, I was barely even breathing. The second half of the movie totally killed it though.
