Interesting concept
14 August 2012 | by Kieth11See all my reviews

I don't mind all the male nudity in this movie, the only thing I mind is female nudity (don't ask me why, I just don't like it) (Thankfully there is none in this movie), so if you can get past all the male nudity and stuff that is similar, then you might like this movie.

There is a really neat plot, about people that are addicted to electricity, and each time someone electrifies themselves on purpose (of course) then I felt a rush throughout my body (who else felt like that?). This happened a few times throughout the movie, and when they put actual plugs into their hands, this feeling intensified a bit.

The thing I don't get is, "why him?" a guy that just joined already making huge changes to the organization? That part I don't get. It doesn't seem right to let a newbie create something that could change the whole organization, but...

After about an hour (maybe) the movie starts getting boring. All you see is stuff you've already seen before: electrifying themselves; the two gay characters "hooking up" in explicit detail (kind of) that you've seen before; nothing new. Got a little too repetitive to me.
