A Working Actor's Perspective
18 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, as a working film actor, I thought this pilot was not only incredibly disappointing, but painfully embarrassing.

Had I been handed this script, and I was down to my last penny I might have accepted any role (on this pilot) just to have money to eat.

However, starving with integrity is sometimes better than dining with shame.

As an actor, I'm of the opinion that if you want to get into film (as an actor, writer, director, etc.) you should do so primarily because the art of story telling appeals to you. And, if you actually want to be considered as a serious contender in this field you need to at least: A.) Know the basic elements of a narrative, B.) Understand that character development is essential, C.) Know that a story needs to have a plot, substance, a point, etc. and D.) Be aware of the fact that anyone can "act" in front of a camera, the talent/skill lies in creating interest for a viewer.

This re-imaged Knight Rider pilot (despite it's intended comical-like aspect) was yet another example of corporate and network desperation. The bar keeps getting lower, because imagination and talent is running dry. Not to mention that the moral compasses of Hollywood execs are fixed on dollars not sense.

In short, this was so god-awful and ill-conceived it should sweep the Razzies. Anyone with a modicum of cinematic taste or basic narrative sensibility would be hard pressed to derive any entertainment from this petri dish of film.
