"The Beast"
23 November 2005 | by 8katana8See all my reviews

This is an amazingly bad film! Truly, deeply awful, for those of us not understanding Icelandic, the English dubbing is heinous. But combined with a hazy, blurry plot line, groan-inducing acting and editing to cause cries of "what goes on here?" the beast is an ugly animal.

We the audience were unsure of what was going on, the actors looked like they didn't know, and if there was a director on the set, he certainly wasn't showing any sign of directing! If you want a truly great movie from Iceland of similar vintage, but light-years better watching, try Djöflaeyjan {Devil's Island) http://imdb.com/title/tt0116116
