Dark Was the Night (2014)
I was quite pleasantly surprised by this movie. After reading reviews from people on here saying its worth a watch, I agree completely, it is well worth a watch if you like creature features.
It kind of reminds me of the classic monster movies, bunch of people killed at the beginning, strange things happening throughout, animals disappearing, brief glimpse of things at windows, close up of a foot etc.
It builds up the suspense right to the end and like any monster classic you only see what it looks like right at the end. Up until then you've seen dark silhouettes, heard noises, seen hoofs under doors and dead stuff. When you do finally see it, it is a bit of a let down. Once again we are presented with today's directors obsession and complete overuse of CGI for something that was crying out for classic special effects be it animatronics or good old fashioned guy in a suit.
But if you can forgive the few minutes when it appears and you like suspense then give it a go.
Worth a watch for nerd fans
I have no clue why this movie is receiving such hate, were people going into it expecting The Shawshank Redemption or something.
People saying it's cheesy and the effects are laughable, errr that's what they were aiming for, then start comparing it to other low budget films like Napoleon dynamite which was a weird creepy piece of crap.
I'm not going to go into the plot and the acting performances you can see for yourself. One thing I was a little confused about was why they changed the names and covers of some games like they couldn't get the rights for them or something.
To me this just seemed like a feature length AVGN episode defo worth a watch for nerd fans.
Among Dead Men (2008)
Let down by being made in the first place.
I don't know what film the other reviewers were watching but this has got to be one of the worst films I've ever seen.
OK, so the film had zero budget to play with, man does it look that way.
The camera work looks like it was filmed on a home video camera. The main fighter uses the same fight moves in every single fight he has with the same sound effects, groans, thumps, whacks etc. All used over and over again from the first fight you see. Apart from the fact you can hardly watch the fights cause the camera works shakes about so much or is far to close up to the action you cant really tell whats happening. I can see the were trying to make it look more brutal with the shaky camera but it just gets annoying.
The best fight by far was when the lead actor fought a Chinese kung fu guy and thats mainly cause of the other guys kung fu moves and it's sad to watch the lead actor using the same group of punches and knees to defeat everyone he comes up against.
I tried to watch as much of this film as I could. I could tolerate all of the above to get through it but by far the worst bit was the acting which eventually made me turn it off and flick through it.
I'm a huge martial arts film fan and have sat through some of the worst acted stuff about, going back to the old Chinese dubbed stuff which I could still sit though but this I just couldn't take no more.
Anyone wanting to watch a brutal no holds barred fighting flick then stick with something like Undisputed 3.
