When a jury fails to convict the serial killer who savagely murdered his family, one man must rise above his desire for revenge and descend into the deranged world of a sadistic predator to uncover the truth and finally get justice. What begins as a classic revenge tale takes a dramatic turn into a haunting land of horror and murder.Written by
Tunnel Vision was marketed as an action movie but it's really a lo-fi suspense thriller. See more »
'Tunnel Vision' appeared in my recommended for you section, being somebody recently on a roll watching low budget films in namely the horror and thriller categories. The concept was interesting and sounded like my kind of film, being a fan of thriller and especially one that promises on paper some degree of suspense. That it was low budget didn't bother me, have seen a lot of films made on a modest or less budget but still manage to overcome that in other areas and be halfway decent.
Sadly, 'Tunnel Vision' doesn't really overcome the potential traps that a modest to low budget can, and tend to, have and isn't really halfway decent. Found it pretty weak personally and while part of me was willing to forgive that the visuals would not be up to par another part of me was hoping to see some degree of effort put into the other elements. Didn't really see that, but if anybody else did as seems to be the case here that's fine with me and to each their own.
It is not a film without redeeming qualities. Do agree that Ion Overman is good, the only good performance in the film, and she saves 'Tunnel Vision' from being a complete mess. 'Tunnel Vision' starts off quite engaging too.
Did think the sound and music had their haunting moments.
As much as it pains me to say it, 'Tunnel Vision' is badly hindered by its low budget as every aspect of the production values looks cheap and have a real dreariness. The dialogue is all flab and no tautness and has a stilted flow throughout. Other than Overman the acting is weak. Cristos mumbles his way through his role and looks ill at ease throughout, while the rest of the cast seem stifled and struggle to do anything with their sketchily written characters.
Very early on, the direction fails to generate any tension and never allows the story to breathe, gel or come to life. Other than a decent start, the story is so dull and routine with a tedious pace and the complete lack of thrills or suspense in a film that should have been full of both gives the film a constant blandness.
Concluding, not a complete failure but weak. 3/10
