Amber Alert (2012)

BOMB (out of 4)

Found footage film about three friends who are shooting an "introduction" video for what they hope will lead to a reality show. While filming they spot a car that has been linked to an amber alert so they decide to follow it. AMBER ALERT is a realistic found footage film but that's not always a good thing. I must admit that I've never seen a movie that has made me more angry than this one here. If a genie had popped up while watching this movie I would have made a wish to jump through my television screen and strangle all three of the people in this movie. I honestly can't recall a more annoying movie full of stupid characters doing stupid things in my life. The entire movie just seems like there was no thought put into it because the story is so slim and there's really nothing that happens through its short 80-minute running time. Obviously if you're following an amber alert car you're going to call the police. How this is handled in the movie is just downright laughable at times and it's certainly not realistic. What's so annoying is that the two lead characters do nothing but scream at each other and usually it's about the same stuff. The guy wants to give up looking. The girl screams at him. The two fight about various things like their responsibility or what could possibly happen to them. This non-stop arguing appears to be improvised and it's just annoying and throughout the film it just keeps repeating itself. At times I had to stand up during the movie because my blood was boiling over how angry these characters were making me. They do one stupid thing after another. Yes, you need to suspend disbelief at times but this film crossed the line into stupidity. With that said, I think for the most part the film is technical well-made considering it is a found footage movie. It's well-shot and I think the performances are realistic but, then again, this also adds to some of the annoying bits. I'm not going to spoil anything in the movie but if I were to do so then you'd see how many more faults are in the story. AMBER ALERT is without question one of the most annoying films I've ever seen and it's actually making more angry as I write all of this.
