Well - technical aspects (cinematography etc) are OK, with the exception of the sound.
In the same scene we go from a well balanced and miked shot to something resembling someone in a bathroom - very distracting. It only happened a few times, but it was enough.
There were many editing cuts which simply did not work. Many times during dialogue there was a noticeable delay between one character speaking and the next which ruined the flow (what there was of it) of the conversation.
The acting was on the poor side. I don't know if that was because of a lack of acting ability, lack of direction (which was also noticeable), or that the characters were not part of the scene and stood out like wooden fence posts.
According to IMDb the budget for this movie is estimated at £1 million. It is very hard to see where that amount of money could possibly have been spent. A few scenes were obviously shot in a makeshift office somewhere and did not relay the story relating to them.
The story is also very weak and seems to be rushed from one element to another without consideration of making the viewer part of it.
Overall one to miss. I have seen student films, and films shot on much lower budgets which far exceed the quality of this production. It is as though someone had some spare cash and decided to waste it on a weekend with their mates.
