Uneven story with
8 February 2009 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Like many indie films, Harrison Montgomery is comprised of hit-and-miss elements. The lighting is horrible in a lot of scenes, and the (few) special effects are distractingly poor.

The real problem with Harrison Montgomery is the story. The setup is slow and moves in jumps and starts. Right when the conflict starts, the film goes off on a series of tangents that are neither interesting nor particularly relevant to the plot. You could easily leave the theater for 30 minutes and come back without missing anything. The ending is a bit confused, though I found it fun (don't worry, I won't spoil it here.) As for good points, the casting was excellent. You rarely see performances this solid in any film, let alone an independent film. I was especially impressed by Octavio Gómez and Ron Roggé.

So in summary, Harrison Montgomery is a deeply flawed film with a lot of heart and not much else.
