Don't believe the other reviews...dey iz fake, mate!
29 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this based on the glowing reviews. However, take a look at those reviews and they are by individuals who have NEVER written a review before.

Sure, it's now commonplace to label such glowing reviews from 1st-time reviewers as being shills, and many current reviewers will say exactly that in their negative reviews. will I.

I cannot disagree with them. I saw the same film as those giving this 9 and 10 stars, and all I saw was a student-grade film which had more a bit more money thrown at it. As far as the look, it was cheesy and was potentially shot with a DSLR. Which isn't necessarily the kiss of death, but only really works when they are in the hands of those who know how to use them, how to light a scene, and how to make it look better in post. This team didn't achieve that.

Having a low-budget NEVER stopped a film from being excellent, cept when those behind it have little or no talent. And this is one of those situations.

The acting, writing, and direction are not much better either. Extremely common and well-trodden ground.

As I often say, and I am dead-sincere....I've seen better student films.
