Trivia

Most of the films characters are named for a reason... However, Benzart, who was purely named after the director re-watched Amadeus, loved the name Mozart so much that he wanted his villain to bear some resemblance. The first half of the name came to him one day when he was checking the back of a hand wash bottle, he saw the ingredient Benzium 'Solution.' See more »

Good effort but not up to standard
17 April 2017 | by mariusdjSee all my reviews

I loved the picture of the film. Scenes were great and well shoot. It looked really like a blockbuster movie.

I've found screenplay very cheesy; it sometimes sounded more theatrical than anything. Some lines were so surreal/fake that I felt like I should have stopped watching as do something better. I know, I may sound harsh, but I started watching this movie with high expectations, silly me! The screenplay was simply not good enough.

Acting was also a bit of disappointment, too. The 2 main actors were just OK, again, too theatrical at times. Some other actors (i.e. gangsters, flatmates..) were not really up to standard and seemed quite amateur.

I gave 3 stars out of 10 for the quality of images and scenes, which were really good, and the cause the movie is trying to promote, great effort there; if it was not for that, I would have given a 1.
