Terrible -- even for an Indy, low budget
14 September 2006 | by Wataru_Gin2001See all my reviews

This movie is just a bunch of edited junk put together. The director/writer needs to go back to film school and review the basics (if he even went). There are so many poorly framed scenes in this movie. Frequently I wondered, as I watched, why the camera was focused on a plant in the background instead of the actor/speaker. Also, there were many scenes where the actor/speaker barely had a quarter of the screen for focus, making it difficult to watch and concentrate on their lines. No focus in this movie at all.

Also, you can actually *hear* the cuts between each take because the audio doesn't sync up right. You will frequently hear someone deliver their lines (poorly, I might add) then see the camera change to another angle and painfully hear a POP or SNAP in the track. Also, the audio level is ALL over the place. Clearly there was no attempt to make it sync up.

Finally, there's the lighting -- or lack of. Most scenes obviously didn't have a light kit involved. Everyone looks flat and 2-dimensional. Frequently when the camera cut to another angle, the color balance would go all wacky. This movie appears to have the quality of an old 80s camcorder.

Credit does go to the director though for a first-attempt at a film. I can appreciate that. Maybe your next one will be better. Please practice your camera work and editing first, though.

So I have to just ask.... who gave this movie a 10? Looking at the cast and crew list... I imagine everyone who worked on this film probably logged onto IMDb.com and ranked their own movie. Don't fall for it. It's utter crap.
