This is no masterpiece, and the premise requires a fair amount of suspension of disbelief, but I was pleasantly surprised by the decent camera work, colors used, sound editing, and overall presentation of the story. It's more of a dark comedy/drama than a horror or thriller, with some amusing, well-written scenes. The acting is mostly pretty good among its main characters, and carries the story nicely even if it has a somewhat lukewarm finale. On a day where I watched and reviewed a truly terrible horror movie with F-list actors, I was appreciative of this film's cast. The beginning minute or so made me a little nervous because it looked like it was going to be another garbage movie, but then that part ended up being an intentionally goofy scene where our protagonist was pitching a bad movie to a producer. Is it a classic? No. But if you're sick of giving chances to unknown indie films that end up exploding in your face with stupidity, you may agree that Greenlight is a surprisingly enjoyable trip into relative madness. 5.5 out of 10
