problematic thriller
27 April 2019 | by tdrishSee all my reviews

Menno's Mind is an unusual movie. With that said, I think it had a creative idea, but didn't know what direction to go with it, went in a strange direction instead, and SPLAT goes the tomato! I have to give them credit, it was an interesting idea, but it just doesn't work here. I really appreciate these kind of films, of bizarre genre. The film establishes a place where people can go to live out their fantasies in a virtual reality helm. ( One of the characters is funny, he thinks he's making love to a woman, and you see his tongue lolling to one side. Too funny!) Of course, there's a twist. And the direction it goes, I cannot give it away, let's just say...the film makers did their best to make this a psychological action thriller, but it fails on every one of those levels. In its defense, I think this was a fun and entertaining ride. I think its worth a look, and try to overlook the silly themes, and you'll be fine. It seems they tried to make a good movie, and if they failed, but created an entertaining piece instead, I will gladly accept it for what it is, and overlook it for whats it not. Thumbs up for trying Menno's Mind, but your far from supreme.
