Powerful ending but flawed set-up
21 October 2006 | by (Tel Aviv, Israel) – See all my reviews

Unlike most short films, Sea Monsters actually has a clear, strong story and a good emotional pay-off. The problem, in my opinion, is the boring set up. Very little happens in the first five minutes. People sigh, they stare, they frown, they say some dialog - but then, finally, we get to the point and the movie takes off and it's powerful stuff. When given something to do, the actors are extremely good especially James Midgely. I saw the film at the Tel-Aviv University student film festival, and by chance my guest for the festival was the writer of the script Raphael Smith. I asked him about the process of making this film and understood that there were many changes were made to his script. I read the original script and I think the original story may have improved the results.
