Lo (2009)

Didn't expect it to be this good., 13 April 2011
10/10

Lo is more than just good. It's a masterpiece. There's something so strange and satisfying about this smart and clever little film.

The plot is simple. Boy meets girl. girl gets kidnapped by demon. Guy teams up with different demon to get girl back.

Sounds basic, but it works and the narrative is surprisingly rather complex and undeniably entertaining.

This is a movie that will (or at least should) go down as a cult classic like Donnie Darko or the Rocky Horror picture show. It just goes to show that movies don't need massive budgets to be good. Just a good script...and $40.

This movie really made me teary in some scenes and i never cry in movies. NEVER! This is seriously to date, the first and only movie that I have ever cried at. Why? Because i'm a heartless bastard. That's why. This movie must have given me a heart, because I felt so emotionally involved with the characters and the story that I did, no joke, cry. I loved this movie. I love this movie with all the love a loving lover can love with. Love. love. love.

Seriously though. This film is incredible. It's too bad that so few people have actually seen it.

Please check it out. It's great

Criminally underrated, 13 April 2011
10/10

Some of these negative reviews are interesting. Of course you're not wrong, everyone has a right to their own opinion, but come on. One reviewer is complaining about how it's not an action movie, another is complaining about plot holes. You wanna see plot holes? Watch Death Sentence, another revenge film which is rated higher than this despite not making any sense. This film is amazing. The performances are amazing. The story is intriguing and gritty. The ending is really intense. What's with all the hate? sure there are some problems occasionally, but all in all, it's a really, really good movie. I thought it was incredible.

horrible, 30 January 2011
1/10

Let me start off with this. I loved Transformers as a kid and I love a fun, mindless action movie (like Crank or Die Hard) This is one of the most overrated films ever made. The special effects look pretty good, but the action is poor, the acting is awful, the story is bland, and the humor is irritating.

OK, so the logic holes are Gigantic. For example, Bernie Mac plays a car salesman who Sam (Shia Labeouf) tries to buy a car from. One of the cars is bumblebee. Bumblebee (somehow) blows up the windows of every other car. Sam takes Bumblebee home and neither he or his father question what the hell just happened.

Megan Fox is hot, but she's a terrible actress. John Tutorro is great, but he's really chewing up the scenery here. Josh Duhemal and Tyrese Gibson aren't given much to do. Shia Labeouf is so-so.

But we don't care about that stuff right? I mean this is an action movie. Too bad that there are barely any robot fights in a film called transformers. For instance, in one scene Shia Labeouf and Megan fox are running away from a decepticon. Bumblebee starts fighting it, but instead of focusing on Bumblebee fighting, we focus on those stupid teenagers running. Screw That. I wanna see robots fight. This film is more about the humans than the transformers.

When the robot fights do happen, it's pretty poorly filmed and none of the fights are terribly engaging.

We don't even meet Megatron for like 90 minutes and we don't meet optimus for like an hour. Lame. I don't care about a couple of stupid teenagers and their car.

And the whole plot revolves around Ebay? That's a real cool idea for an action movie. ugh.

And the "humor" is awful. The only funny scene in the whole movie was the doughnut joke. Everything else was just stupid.

If you truly are a Transformers fan, don't waste your time. This film sucks
