a so-so low budget sci-fi film
9 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Stratagem" has some decent acting, some inconsistent cinematography and some pretty bad framing/compositions. I noticed early on that the sound needed a lot of design work/fixing, and was wondering why in the world anyone would go through such lengths to make a film like this and leave the sound design untouched.

The actors are not awful, as the case is in most of low-budget sci-fi films. The story is a bit confusing, and after a while I didn't really care much. I did, however, like the female lead, who is sexy in each different outfit she wore in the film. The writing is okay, and just like the story, somewhat confusing.

The editing and cinematography left a lot to be desired; the special/visual effects were not bad (again, for such a low budget film). Overall, I say I've seen worse films; I just wish that all low budget sci-fi/action movies didn't feel the need to rely on guns so much. It's not that I'm anti gun; it's just becoming a major cliché in low budget film-making, that's all.
