Kevin Smith is my Idol.
7 November 2011 | by (Rhode Island) – See all my reviews

Kevin is the reason I went to school for film. Much of my writing and dialogue is heavily influenced by Kevin's material throughout the years. I gave this film 1 star out of 10. It was a huge mess. The story was lame, the dialogue was "eh" and the acting was truly awful. The characters were awful and I felt like I was suffering through a Rob Zombie film. Did Kevin have Zombie secretly guide him through the filming of this awful piece of crap? Kevin hits on all cylinders when he does comedy, no mistake about it, but he suffers as a film maker when he attempts other genres (Red State AKA The-Awful-Makes-No-Sense-With-Unlikeable- Characters, Jersey Girl, etc.) Kevin Smith making a horror film is just a terrible idea. I would not ask Rob Zombie to direct Saving Private Ryan, would you? I don't look forward to Hit Somebody, Clerks 2....I'm afraid...was and will be Kevin's last great film, if he retires after making Hit Somebody (why is it a two part movie?) My God, the dialogue in this film and the acting was truly, truly, truly awful. I'll continue to re-watch the View Askewniverse flicks and relive the glory days of his filmmaking. I have lost faith in Kevin Smith with this film. Now onder no studios would distribute this pile of rubbish.
