Heartless? It's Pointless!
14 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

This movie is a failed attempt at real horror and drama. It kind of leaves you feeling like you just meandered through a film with an aimless plot that only skimmed the surface of the occult and demon world. There's so many obvious questions that aren't asked or answered by the main character, Jamie, in places where common sense would suggest there should be.

The writer's left out key elements that could have made this film something more than an empty plot, to a believable story that actually had meaningful dialog - it didn't. While the acting was film-worthy and the gritty urban dark feel and tone of the film gave it presence, the script did nothing to support the look of the film nor it's characters from what laid just below the surface of the macabre.

I believe Ridley, the director, was trying to convey looking into oneself and discovering the beauty within. But what he did was turn it into a tragic affair of the heart leaving you feeling "Heartless" for the film.

There are characters thrown in that begs the question, "who are they," and why are they there. Having someone just pop in with no back story then attaching themselves to the main character in the film is like plopping a kid in your lap and having it call you "daddy." It kept you wondering, but not in a good way, that would make you get up and walk out of the theater if you weren't watching it at home.

Towards the middle of the movie, it takes on an entirely different mode, which should have been played out further with the two main characters, Tia and Jamie and their relationship - that's where the real meaningful story was.

In conclusion, the story leaves you feeling empty like you didn't have any meaningful or profound message that you could take away from it spending almost two hours of your life, which you'll never get back.

Do yourself a favor and pass on this trite scare tactics with a pointless ominous soundtrack and plot with a myriad of stories that take an abrupt turn into one another and make no sense.

This film isn't Heartless, it's pointless!
