Lets go for a ride down 'none of this made sense' lane...
5 July 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Okay, so lets start off with my overall thought of this flick, it was average. But unlike a vast majority of the people who has seen this, I did enjoy it, and I did watch it from beginning to end, however I was still left in disbelief as to what I had just seen.

This isn't the kind of film that if you watch it over and over, it will start making sense, because nor does this movie fail to succeed in clearing specific details up, it also fails at creating a realistic storyline.

But not every story that has been written is based on reality, this is purely someones imagination playing a hand at poker. He thinks he has a good hand, but really... he's just an amateur at heart, trying to make something interesting, but ending up WAY over the top. Nothing wrong with that though, as long as no one expects an Oscar.

This movie has an uncomfortable atmosphere, the characters were creepy and to some extent, intense. I was really let down when Jason's son didn't have that big a role, because obviously this story began around his death, and it was clear that the kid who played him is very talented, they should have given him some more scenes to bloom for his resume.

Jake, Jake, Jake... You were given a lead role, you were given SO many chances to create something here for yourself, a nice big juicy "well you see, the movie sucked, but that Jake, he really had me glued!" But I was slightly let down. Okay, more than slightly, but I don't want to mentally damage this man. Because I've seen some of his other stuff and I thought he was BRILLIANT. But he is clearly either a freaky psychopathic serial killer, or... a comedy jewel. However I appreciate him leaping into something different for a change. He's talented when given the right roles. This movie did not let him go very far with my expectations.

This film, if it were made by film students would be above average.

But I would definitely recommend a watch if you are incredibly bored and enjoy far too original films.

It doesn't deserve a three though, common, you can see the effort and the camera work very much impressed me.
