Fun, gripping but poor writing.
26 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

I'm a massive fan of Brad Jones, i love the cinema snob and all his other shows, and i love his movie 'Gameboys', but i don't think this is his strongest film.

A lot of people are talking about the quality of the film, but I don't think Brad would really think that makes his film any better, as he frequently talks about how a lot of films are made better by grain on VHS, and in fact all his other films were shot directly to VHS. Yes this film looks good, the lighting is alright, but that doesn't make the film.

Personally, i really don't like the writing of the film, mostly because i don't feel that this is how real people would react if they were put in these situations. There are certain moments when it does seem real, but for the most part, they feel like characters in a film reading from a script. There is only about 5 minutes of exposition, and even that doesn't really explain a whole lot about the characters or the scenario. None of the characters are really given any interesting attributes, so they're all pretty forgettable.

That being said, it does feel like a solid film, and very enjoyable to watch. The camera work is pretty incredible, though i think they could have done a lot more with the black and white (see Good Night and Good Luck), but the use of camera angles was non-intrusive and worked very well for the movie. The score was really good, simple and effective, though some of the music added seemed out of place and took away a bit from the atmosphere. The acting is good, though not amazing, except for Brad who gives an incredible performance.

It's a fun film, I say it's worth the watch especially because it's free to view on The Cinema Snob website. I give the film a 6/10 mostly because the writing holds it back, but I really did love watching this movie.
