What other synonyms are there for the word 'awful'?
There's a reason why UK films often don't make the honours list at the Oscars...awful acting.
This movie has all the charisma of Robert De Niro wearing a ballet tutu and auditioning for the lead role in Swan Lake.
Whilst the British should pride themselves on good period dramas such as "Pride and Prejudice", "188.8.131.52." unfortunately is an awful film. Period (pardon the pun).
The acting was painful. There was no chemistry between the actors. The lesbian sex scene(s) was no more than gratuitous eye candy so as to entice the film fan to stay awake a bit longer and the UK Garage soundtrack which we should be celebrating as being uniquely British merely proves that as a genre it has never taken off, internationally.
Kevin Smith, Mandy Patinkin and Michelle Ryan's cameo appearance were the only saving grace during the movie.
Look past the skimpy underwear, occasional high kicks and one liners and this film falls short of the mark. Desperately.
Recall the Beatles song, "A Day In The Life" and then imagine 4 lead characters having their part in the film portrayed individually for 15
20 minutes. By the time the 2nd character's 'day in the life' is
portrayed, I really wanted to go home.
A film plot is only as good as the actors who make it real and keep you glued to your seat. I just wanted to get up and go make a cup of tea...
