Double Dagger (2008)
User ReviewsReview this title
The plot isn't original or that entertaining but I am willing to set that aside, it was mostly the poor cast of actors and their lact of any acting abilities that I think really bring the movie down. It probably couldn't have been any worse if they were reading off cue cards the entire time, in some cases they may have been.
Anyway It won't be a movie I recommend unless your having trouble sleeping and don't mind suffering through the movie until you go out.
Generally, I don't like movies that start with a scene and then suddenly do the '5 days ago' - thing, I always think, 'you will have to show me a decent movie to make me forget about this scene'. This one didn't!
The lines in this movie are the worst I have ever seen/heard. Image is OK, even some action. But the conversations are just so ridiculous this movie really is a waste of time! and what about that lead! OK, if you speak English with a Spanish accent, who cares, but it should be some sort of real English at least. If you can't do that, well speak Spanish man!
Well, since I didn't have enough lines to post this, i decided to finish the movie anyway.
It got worse. The movie maker obviously thinks his viewers are stupid.
This movie is awful, acting was very, very bad!
A cut or two above the amateur ranks this film isn't very good with our hero seeming to sit brooding in every other scene and the people around him often playing to the camera. Its as if no one had been on camera before, or worse no one had any idea how to really convey emotions. You never believe any of it for an instant. There is no sense of anything other than lets play dress up. I have no idea how this film got released to DVD, except that there is no underestimating the ability for people to try bad movies, I mean even I picked it up.
the characters are all pretty interesting, and you find yourself rooting for the bad guys just because they seem like ordinary dudes. there are some crazy twists that may keep you guessing just who the bad guys are.
it's kinda pulp fiction-y and stylized, but there are some real emotional moments. some of the dialogue is a bit stiff, but there are pretty funny jokes in there as well. if you want a stress free laugh, check it out
oh and the music is great!
Pros: The story was well thought out with a great twist at the end and the music was good. Musicians should be able to appreciate some of the time signatures and melodies.
Cons: The only drawback for me was some of the acting. Most of it was good but the ones who were bad were just kinda funny to watch.
If you are skeptical about watching indie films...don't be. I highly recommend anyone give this movie a try!
