Uninterestiang, boring, poorly executed small budget film
20 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to take issue with both reviewers that preceded me. This film misses the mark. It has the mark of amateurism all over it. Don't get me wrong I have seen a lot of amateur films that were made better because they have a fresh point of view. It was a great idea but in this case it did not work.

The primary problem in my view is the script. Did the writers have to hurry the writing process too much? Did they not consider the actor's strong points? Does it fail because of an inexperienced director? Could be all of these.

The actors appear to be fully capable of crafting a good performance but the words they are given to say just do not fit with their characters. A comedy is a hard thing to make successful. Maybe the makers can be forgiven for failing so badly.

With the write script and some better situations and stronger characterizations this could have been very funny. To me, at least, this film is just plain boring. About 3/4 of the way through I just gave up. I have seen thousands of films and almost never failed to finish one. The Locksmith just asked too much of me.

If you want to see a successful quirky comedy check out "Smiley Face".

But in the case of The Locksmith quirky just does not work. Sorry to be the skunk at the picnic!
