Wasted potential
6 March 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised that this movie got such a high score. I was really interested in this movie after reading the plot, and seeing the images on the back. But the moment the talking and acting started, I knew this was going to be pretty bad. Not only did they choose to replace the real native language with silly accents in English, removing a lot of the credibility, but the accents are so laughably bad that I just could not take this seriously. The acting was, most of the time, really stiff and unbelievable. To me it seemed like some of the actors where actually good at acting, but couldn't mimic the accent properly. Most of them spoke in one monotonous tone all the time.

This movie had a lot of potential, because I found it very well shot and the characters and environments sure looked just right. The music is good and the make-up really good, but it's all lost in a very confusing and slow-moving story. There are so many unanswered questions, plot holes, random happenings and unexplained behaviour that it just feels like they tried their best to make this a confusing mess, even though the story as a whole don't seem that advanced or deep. I also felt that they could have used the setting more to their advantage, to create a creepier and more eerie feeling. There where a few pretty hilarious moments, I'll definitely give them that, but it did not make the movie worth the watch.

Now if you're a fan of vampires, horror, dark comedy, gore, intelligent, political, or just plain good movies, stay away. This movie seemed to promise it all(except the gore), but delivers on none.
