The Strange Ones: Well it's got the strange part down
30 January 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The Strange Ones is a strange film, it tells the story of a man and a boy travelling across country and the secrets they hold.

Thing is everything is so vague, pretty much everything is open to interpretation and the whole thing is about as interesting as reading the back of a tin of beans and half as exciting.

All the way through I was thinking to myself that it was building to something, it'll have a payoff but it didn't it really really didn't.

Lifeless, unforgivably dull and with a story that partially makes no sense and partially just isn't very good.

I very rarely give movies a 1/10, it suggests a film is devoid of any redeeming features but that's exactly what we have here. It's been a while since I've watched a movie so deserving!

The Strange Ones is a remake of a short film created by the same people. I can't imagine the short is much better but can confidently say it won't be any worse.

The Good:

Nothing, nada and/or zip

The Bad:

Goes nowhere

Serves no purpose

Uncannily disturbing

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

They'll give awards out for ruddy anything these days

I don't blame the cup for leaving, I'd have too
