Logical frontiers, 10 September 2012
Author: p-stepien from United Kingdom

In the not-so-distant future of a near-fascist France a rag-tag band of outlaws of Arabic descent attempt to flee the country following a robbery. The foursome include the pregnant Yasmine (Karina Testa) and her former boy-friend Alex (Aurélien Wiik). During the escape the split and decide to meet up next to the Belgian border. Brothers Tom (David Saracino) and Farid (Chems Dahmani) arrive first to a run-down village inn fronted by nymphomaniac sisters from hell...

Featuring a collage of ideas ranging from Nazi nymphos, retarded mutant offspring, mindless cannibalistic butchers and some of the dumbest victims in movie history, "Frontier(s)" attempts to ditch story for a plethora or gore, guts and other such ravings. Despite an initially promising suggestion of social commentary with racism set to be the carrying motif, Gens bottles the opportunity to randomly introduce gruesome deaths and reckless behaviour by dimwitted Arabs.

Truly appalling script stitched together for its basic premise, while all other focus was diverted to churning out a Carrie inspired blood-soaked wedding finale. Situational examples? Two brothers crash in their car (lets avoid the touchy subject of actually being able to survive such a fall) - after miraculously surviving and being left for dead by the Nazis they decide on checking out a defunct mine shaft. Plot logic zero, but it did follow towards a tension-filled scene. Another? Farid, hunted by two Nazis, dispatches one aggressor, then decides to drop his weapon and scream at the toppled body (guess who comes up behind him?). As the plot thickens idiocy scatters around the movie with as much frequency as human entrails, leaving little to nothing to the imagination, probably because the scriptwriter lacked any to deliver a semblance of a logical story.
