Killer waste, 22 February 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

Killer Wave did seem sort of interesting at hindsight, with the idea to have man making tidal waves as a terrorist weapon, but when I did sit down to watch it it was spoilt completely by bad execution. The scenery is good, but the photography has a dull look to it and the effects looked cheesy and would look more at home in films and TV series of the 60s. Killer Wave is furthered hampered by endless continuity problems especially in the scene where Jim's house is destroyed by the tidal wave, including noticeable and distracting changes in position of the wave, and scientific inaccuracies with words you could tell they didn't know the meaning of it. That's not all though. The dialogue is rambling and stilted, the main villain's speech about his humble taking-over could and should have been edited down to three or so sentences and there is nothing interesting in the story or characters. Granted the concept was great, but the pace was pedestrian not helped by scenes that dragged on forever, the whole McAdams framing plotting was far too obvious and I have seen the innocent-guy-holding-the-gun trick countless times before and a million times better. In terms of the characters, none of them engaged me in any way, they are little more than bland stereotypes that you don't care anything for in the end. It seems ironic really because by the end of the first part despite the overkill character padding by the time any character is given any attention you just don't care. The acting is awful, Angus McFadyen is such a promising actor but this story and character is simply beneath him and judging by his phoned-in performance here I got the sense he knew that. Overall, as interesting the idea was, the execution made Killer Wave a waste of time. 1/10 Bethany Cox
