Quickcard Review


Directed by: James M. Hausler

Cast: Nick Stahl, Beau Garrettt, Jonathan Jackson, Alona Tal, Robert Forster, Christopher M. Clark

Running Time: 1 hr 40 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: January 25, 2011 (One-night only in Chicago)

Plot: A recently heartbroken young man (Stahl) returns home to find out that his shifty friend Stan (Jackson) is not at all who he used to be.

Who’S It For? A younger, college-aged audience would probably enjoy this movie best, as those more experienced with heartbreak and life itself might find the film to be particularly juvenile.

Film Review: Muddled ‘Kalamity’ Plays One-Night Only Chicago Engagement

25 January 2011 7:57 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Rating: 1.0/5.0

Chicago – There was a day not that long ago when it felt like Nick Stahl was the next rising star. He delivered nuanced performances in films and on HBO’s “Carnivale” that led one to believe there was potential for stardom. “The Thin Red Line,” “In the Bedroom,” “Bully” — he was going somewhere in the early ’00s, but he was derailed into basically nothing but straight-to-video junk like “Mirrors 2” since 2005’s “Sin City.” Does “Kalamity,” playing a one-night engagement at the Music Box Theatre in Chicago tonight, January 25th, 2011, represent a comeback or continued decline?

I won’t tease you any more by delaying the answer — it is definitely the latter. A muddled mess from the very beginning, “Kalamity” is a near-disaster, a work that offers glimpses yet again at the talent Stahl appears to have squandered but never once comes together into an entertaining piece of its own. »
