BOOOOORING and difficult to follow
9 August 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I subtitled five episodes of "Luck", and although at times it seemed promising, and Dustin Hoffman was great as always, it always seemed like it never took off. The pictures were mostly beautiful, and everything was as well-filmed as a great Hollywood thriller, but the storyline couldn't keep up. Every episode seemed to simply faze out in the end with Dustin Hoffman falling asleep in his hotel room. I don't necessarily need a cliff-hanger like in Prison Break, where Michael Scofield said "We break out… TONIGHT!" at the end of each episode, in every single episode of a show like this, but there was barely anything in this show that made me want to watch another episode. Besides this, the dialogue was extremely cryptic. I've been making subtitles for a living for five years. At times I get a documentary about some strange subject I don't know anything about, so I have to look up a lot of things, but never before have I had a fictitious show, where the dialogue has been so difficult to understand as in this one. It wasn't so much that they mumbled, but the lines were just strange. Maybe it was supposed to be the way "real people" speak in this environment, but it didn't exactly help the viewer. This mostly happened when the four friends who were betting on race horses were on screen. They were of course at times using "insider language", but most often it was just non-sense they were talking. Although I'm not American, I doubt if most Americans would understand the dialogue in this show. I was lucky to have a script when I had to subtitle what Nick Nolte said. I would think barely any native speakers would be able to understand what he said, as it sounded like he was speaking through his death rattle.
