Well, it was OK, but....
14 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

But a bit run of the mill, really.

I'm writing this straight after seeing the film.

Well enough cast and acted, script not too bad, but somehow it still comes across as a bit of a work in progress. A bit like a book published before the writer's quite ready, but the next one will be better.

The gradual suspense ramping up works well, I think it's the action at the end that's been toned down, and lets the film down in the long run. Moses' back story almost seems tagged on to allow the final scenes. Oh, I don't know. Am I being too harsh? It could just have been a bit tighter, is all, and the last minutes didn't quite work, in the light of all the good stuff that had gone before.

As I've been writing this, my vote has gone up from 5 to 7, so maybe it's sinking in. I still think the showdown needed better direction, but all in all, as I say, Carmen Madden will grow before the next one.
