Nothing to this
12 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought that this short film was trash. Poorly edited, poorly shot, and of course poorly acted. Probably the best thing i noticed in this short, other than it ending, was one rapid up close shot of some barbed wire, displaying the rough, dangerous setting that this film was taking place in. However, from watching the film i achieved nothing more than i did from reading the synopsis. There were no deeper levels in this film, all i could see was a few people with toy guns and a lot of fake blood. Why are there shots with a blurry red lens? Why are the supposed subtitles in times new roman font? What is the reason for the subtitles, as they explain nothing? Why does the one man want to shove a knife up the other mans anus? Why is this film currently rated with 8.8 stars?
