Nice try Robin
4 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I had high expectations when I've rented this movie. Genre movie, especially scifi and horror coming from La Belle Province are somewhat rare so of course this movie was at the top of my rental list. I give it a 5 out of 10 (or a 5 out of 7: all quebecers who read TV Hebdo critics will know what I mean) and I don't think it deserves any better.

For the record this is not a bad movie and there is a lot of talent involved: Great actors, great photography, fantastic settings but one major flaw: an absolutely AWFUL script. The whole idea and theme is indeed interesting but it is drowned out by the multiplication of subplots, characters and mixed genres. This is an unbelievable patchwork that does not hold and it feels gratuitous.

Nice try Robin.
