Trivia

During the 45 minute mark, Nadja uses a stethoscope to listen to her babies heartbeat. While this can be possible, the earliest this would work is at 20 weeks, halfway through the pregnancy. See more »

Eh, it's not as bad as some of these wannabe critics say it is.
12 February 2021 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

Red Dot is an international Swedish film written and directed by Alain Darborg, in his second full length feature film, with only a handful of shorts and TV episodes under his belt. His directing was on point, with excellent use of the landscape and sets.

The story we've seen before, and up until the last 20 mins or so, I was getting a little frustrated and bored that this film wasn't going anywhere. Then all of a sudden the film comes up with some nice twists and turns, and that made it different from the typical survival films. Also up until that point, the pacing felt slow, so the normally decent 86 min runtime felt longer. I would've liked the last 20 minutes extended more into the latter part of the story. There were a few plot and technical issues, and some questionable (no spoiler) "why wouldn't they pick it up" moments, but overall, the story was very fluid and cohesive. The ending will certainly shake things up for the viewer.

The cinematography was excellent, as was the score. There are a few "wtf" gore moments, but without those, the film may have felt stale. Casting and performances were actually really good as well. For an international low-budget non-Hollywood-ish-blockbuster type film, it's certainly deserving of my 7/10. All those wannabe critics with their 1's and 2's need to give their heads a shake, and learn how to review a film properly, and realize there's a scale from 1-10, not 1 or 10. This film had many great features from a filmmaker that hardly had much experience. They should click on my username to see more of my 1000+ reviews, and read up on how to properly rate a film in my bio. For everyone else wondering if they should see this, considering the slim-pickings, this sub-titled film will be more suspenseful than some of the garbage that has come out lately, although it may not seem like that at first. Give it a chance, you wont be disappointed.
