A shocker!
15 April 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This has to be one of the most excruciating pieces of "cinema" I have had the unfortunate honour to sit through in a long time. Thank god it was short!. It appears as if it has been savaged in the edit process so that it makes absolutely no sense. I found it very hard to get a handle on it. What was it trying to say? It is obviously a low budget piece and there has been quite an effort put into giving it some visual production value but the script lets it all down. The actors flail around in the mess that is loosely called a script and it seems there has been a very ineffective hand from the director in guiding the performances. Some sit comfortably, but quite a few are stilted, awkward and seriously over-the-top to the point of embarrassment. Go back to film school...no, wait, don't waste their time. Just go and watch a few movies then compare this piece of rubbish against them. If you don't notice something then go and get a job in a factory. This effort makes "Thunderstruck" look like high art.
