Great Production and Effort, Story Could've Been Thought Out a Little Less
24 May 2006 | by movieking5000See all my reviews

I saw the film when it appeared in Iowa City, where it was shot. I was surprised by the production value. The filmmakers made it look really sharp! Kudos to the team and the actors. I'd say more so to the actors, because even with the high-end production value, I felt that parts of the movie a bit cliché and a bit overdone. I don't think that makes it bad, but it keeps the film from being all it could be for a student film. I'd rather the plot wasn't done in such an over-complicated way, or that certain plot devices had been left out. But still, I don't think this is a film where you can really critique the writing so much as the production value, the way it was shot, the acting abilities, or the sheer audacity that the filmmakers chose to make a film closer to Hollywood than as an experimental art film which seems to be the only thing coming out of Iowa City film students. There is a place for both, and I appreciate that.
