Acting kills this film
26 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

The idea of this film has some genuine life, but the acting simply slaughters it. At first glance, I thought Last Stop for Paul was a travel documentary, but I quickly discovered that it wasn't. The dialogue was predictable, stale and fabricated. The two main characters are not professional actors, making for some almost laughable tête-à-tête. Each conversation lacked any sort of verisimilitude.

If you can get past the dreadful acting, there are aspects of this film that can be thoroughly enjoyed. For a geography buff like myself, I took pleasure in the scenery, especially when the pair stops in Greece and Vietnam. The producers took time to actually exhibit the landscape too, helping stimulate the viewer where the plot and dialogue don't.

Overall, this film fails miserably in the acting department, but the cinematography is great. Again, the intent of Last Stop for Paul isn't that bad, but it simply didn't take off like it should have.
