Well, for 99p I could have made a better film than this. Cut a square out of the side of a cardboard box, place a small child inside the box, sit back and watch for an hour and a half. There will be more drama, excitement, satisfaction and better acting watching that child in the box than ever watching "Champion Killer." I saw it in the 99p shop once when I was looking for wrapping paper and on a whim I purchased it. Nothing could prepare you for such a dull experience. Made on what looks like the worst/cheapest camera available in the shop, with actors the director seemingly chose because they live next door/didn't demand payment, "Champion Killer" fails to deliver on any meaningful level. It's difficult just to recall how bleak an experience this was. I could waffle on about plot, setting, cast, camera work, lighting, sound and a whole host of other production values but there really is no point. They were all lost on this "film."
I'm not one to come onto IMDb to stir things up and I know a lot of
people get very angry on these boards when someone comes on and slates
a favourite movie of theirs but my opinion's as valid as anyone else's
and I thought this was a ridiculous film.
Argue all you will but I saw nothing original in this and nothing particularly entertaining. For the most part, I thought the actors were poor quality and the story so formulaic in delivery that I can't believe how high this is rated.
I found this to be deeply flawed and desperately uninspiring. I had no idea the Wachowski brothers were involved until I saw the end credits roll, which added further to my disappointment. It could've all been so much better.
