Trivia

Vigalondo was inspired to create Open Windows after he was asked to create a thriller that heavily featured the Internet. He found writing the script a challenge, as he had to create the film's plot as well as give specific reasons for each window that opened and why the point of view would shift between the characters.

It's like a student film. The lame kind.
4 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

-Open Windows, which opens this weekend in limited release I believe, follows a website designer who gets dragged along on a string of escalading events by a hacker and thief. It is a little more complicated than that, but I don't care about it enough to explain it.

-So Open Windows feels like a student film, but not the good kind. Because it was really lame. Its story was unreal and cheesy, with some forced plot twists and an ending that was dumb and didn't make ANY sense. Still a better ending that The Maze Runner.

-It's tone, well it doesn't really have a set tone. I wasn't sure if I should be nervous or anxious or excited or laughing.

-It's acting is very on-par with short films. Even Elijah Wood isn't good in it, and you can tell he doesn't really care. Everyone else is pretty lame.

-I will give it one thing, a lot of it looked like a continuous shot and it had a good pace because of it. But at the same time, it felt very cluttered, and like it just didn't know where it wanted to go.

-It's effects were not terrible. But nothing in it looked good or believable.

-Content: There is no listed rating, but it is not unrated, so I didn't know what to expect. Apparently it has a few F-words and some partial nudity. So R. That's all you had to say IMDb. R.

-Overall Open Windows was very below the standard of acceptable films. It was not good, but not quit so bad it's good. So I will easily say that Open Windows is not worth seeing. Ever. 3/10. Which for those of you keeping track, is even below Transformers 4.
