Painful
29 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on one of those days when you're ready to just sit back, relax and hopefully get treated to something really great that you just can't wait to tell somebody about. Well...it sucked, and now I feel obligated to sit in the reviewers corner with the other disenchanted viewers who kept waiting for something, anything, to happen in this film.

We generally give every film a fighting chance at least for the first 20 minutes right? Even if it's creeping along as the characters are developed and the plot is revealed,I can usually be fairly patient, but instead I found myself clock watching till it was almost over.

One of my biggest pet peeve's is the overuse of extreme darkness in a film, it's impossible to watch especially if you're watching a movie during the day, and there's ambient daylight falling on your TV. The only revealing thing about this situation is it shows you how many fingerprints are on your TV screen. With a four year old in the house, that means many.

As far as the characters I'm a little biased since I'm a huge Colin Hay fan, I wanted him to be good in this, but the script didn't allow it. Mr. Hay in my opinion is by far one of the most talented musicians out there however this script bound him to a mediocre at best character.

I thought the main character Lee was believable and as neutral in personality as Nick's, but perhaps it was the two like personalities,the overuse of darkness, and the "baby thing" thrown in at the last minute that left me with a feeling akin to buying that gotta have it gizmo thing from a late night info-mercial only to be sadly disappointed when you finally open the box.

All in all I think some good talent got sent straight to video on a slow train to nowhere.
