Vendetta
26 September 2015 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

Co-directors Jen and Sylvia Soska making an action film? It definitely sounded interesting. This duet of Canadian filmmakers earned fame in the horror genre thanks to the twisted aesthetic and sardonic sense of humor displayed in films like the excellent American Mary and the mediocre, but moderately entertaining See No Evil 2. Therefore, it was natural that they decided to expand their horizons venturing into different types of stories; and a revenge tale sounded like a good option, because it offers wide opportunity for them to exploit their affinity for the gore. Besides, under the auspice from World Wrestling Entertainment, there won't be missing any fighters to fill the screen with imposing villains. What could go wrong? Unfortunately, many things. Practically everything, in fact. To start with, Vendetta doesn't display even a pinch of the rich and distinctive visual style which characterizes the Soska sisters. On the opposite, everything looks... I don't know... small and lifeless, from the bland locations in the most austere imaginable "prison" to the fights which integrate an important part of the hollow screenplay. The edition also looks amateur, hindering the action and diluting even the slightest suspense. And let's not forget the atrocious performances from the whole cast, with the exception of Dean Cain. Like many other people, I have a "geek" affection for Cain, whose likable work as Superman/Clark Kent in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman made him a cult figure and the main actor in an uncountable number of "B" movies. He isn't a great actor, but he isn't bad either, and his expression of rage and determination in Vendetta makes him credible in his role. I truly hope the fact that Vendetta was a mere mercenary project for the Soska sisters, and that it doesn't reflect a decline of their talent or the dramatic apathy they will display from now on. Hopefully, this was just a contractual duty or an economical maneuver to finance their next project, which will be essential to determine whether there's vision left in the duet, or if we have to discard them and seek somewhere else for the redeemers of the horror and the action genres. Fortunately, there are other female candidates, such as Jennifer Kent (The Babadook) and Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night), so we can be calm. But I wouldn't like missing the Soska sisters. The co- directors of American Mary deserve another chance.
