Quick turns between crap and good fun
3 January 2016 | by rottningeSee all my reviews

There's some fun dialogue at times. There's an interesting idea. Good casting. The basic story is, conceptually, good.

But the problem I had watching it was that I was thrown every 30 seconds between hating the script and all illogical stuff, and getting back to that it was actually quite fun and entertaining.

There's plenty of illogical stuff going on in this movie, and in that I don't even include the stuff that were meant to be illogical, or the sci-fi element.

I think my problem with The Subjects boils down to that this movie could have been good if it had focused more on one of the genres/themes it contained: comedy, a group of people stuck together, superpowers, or the clinical trial experiment. Choose one and tone the other three down. But now, the comedy comes sporadically, the group of people stuck together had to be compressed in between everything else that went down, the superpowers were too over the top, and the clinical trial was just a means for transportation to get to the scenario set up (from a scientific standpoint it was cringe worthy).

I switched back and fourth between enjoying The Subjects and finding it ridiculous.

Today I gave it 4/6 Any other day I could have given it a 6/10 depending on the mood
