I want my 8 minutes back
6 March 2006 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I'd like to know who I have got to sue to get back the eight minutes of my life I wasted watching this thing (not that I did not call it a film).

The one thing that I can not figure out is just why a cool actor like Cliff Curtis (who has acted very well in a number of movies such as Once Where Warriors, Deep Rising with Jamie Lee Curtis, and River Queen with Tem Morrison) would let his Filmography be sullied with such rubbish - I'd bet he's missed out on some movie roles because he's linked to "henious crime", and casting staff would watch it and decide that a quality actor would never participate in this low level of amateur work.

I am personally insulted as a viewer and 48-Hour film fan that I am expected to believe that the finished product was this bad by design. I've seen a lot of other NZ shorts like "Jesse McLeod: The Journey" written by Te Radar (my hero) which are actually well made and deserving of a place in the 48 Hour film contest. This film would have been better as a finished product if the tape had been accidentally erased or run over by a truck before it was entered in to the contest.

This film is another nail in the coffin of Cohens possible career in film, along with his lack of humility during appearances on NZ television while his films have been shown at festivals (which did nothing to endear him in the hearts of New Zealanders). He will do well if he grows up and pulls his head in - you don't see Peter Jackson acting like a fruit during interviews, do you?
