Not really worth waiting for the punchline...
1 July 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

LUCKY came third in the Sony Tropfest film competition a few years ago

  • quite undeservedly so.




Although the film was well made it was ultimately rather pointless. The plot went nowhere - basically 'Lucky', the film's protagonist, tries to escape a moving car. And that's it. The whole storyline.

Need I say more?

It's a shame to think what Lucky's success means in the greater shape of things. Tropfest clearly chose this film for its technical capabilities and stunts as opposed to real story-telling.

That alone seems to go against everything the festival stands for.
