Mildly Enjoyable

As a movie buff, I often stray away from the Hollywood, big picture in search for diamonds in the rough. The independent film market often offers a plethora of genres, styles, and unique stories that can tickle anyone's fancy. "Swooped Based on a Real Life Occurrence," or "Swooped," for short, is definitely not that diamond I often look for.

Giving credits to the filmmaker, who from the looks of the production, didn't seem to have much of a budget, the final product is definitely respectable. Give or take a few sound glitches, uninspired sets, and all but creative camera work, the film looks fairly decent.

The story itself leaves room for questions. Perhaps it would have done better as a short, as the film itself could stand to lose a few pounds of un-contributing fat. There are isolated moments that are very entertaining, but the over all story seems to be lacking a purpose. There is no message to the film (not that every film should have one, but even "American Pie" has a hint of a message ), and the jokes seem a bit forced and repetitive. The cast was adequate to portray the very simple and somewhat hollow characters. There is nothing truly captivating about the main characters in the film, which once again brings the question of whether it would serve best as a short.

Overall its a movie that would be best enjoyed after a few drinks among friends. Not a movie that lends itself to be remembered, but better than many I've seen.
