B-Movie be's a B-Movie.
26 April 2013 | by (Munich) – See all my reviews

Harmless fun that should be commended for its untrammeled imagination and interesting panoply of ideas, cheaply implemented, that don't quite fulfill their potential but entertain you along their way for their sense of invention.

The fire scene at start of film is... embarrassingly shot and edited. But this may well, nay, hopefully, be the directors intention. Haphazard and as cheesy as any sequence shot on a set not on a gimbal, it's either a masterful nod to low budget invention or an object lesson in lazy film-making. The mix-and-match-in-Post attitude to VFX indicates, again another run at the Is-It-BMovie-Masterpiece-Or-Isn't-It fence, either a self-referential commentary on how bad some cheap, generic suite effects can be, or it's the work of some graduates mucking about in Strata3D.

Before they pass a current through this fence I'm sitting on, I'll say there are a lot worse films out there. A lot. Sharktopus anyone?
