This is what happens when some countries have more money than talent and creativity.
21 October 2020 | by DennisBergkamp10See all my reviews

I am going to have to become more selective with the movies I watch. This is what happens when you watch a lot of movies. Every now and then a really bad movie seeps in that ruins your mood.

I am going to start skipping movies if its says anything like...Film Canada or Film Ontario or Film Edmonton...basically anything associated with Canada is going to be a strict no for me henceforth. They will fund anything.

Hammer is the kind of script that should have been forgotten, left to rot and for nature to take its own course. A lot of paper and ink had already been wasted but no more Not a single unit of electricity should be wasted to shred the script. Not a single matchstick should be wasted to burn the script. The damage is already done. Enough money has already been wasted.

After watching some of the movies that have been funded by Canada I am quite certain that if someone had approached them with the script of Waterworld they would have had a collective mental orgasm. If you are bottom of your class in a film-making course in a third world country you should seriously consider moving to Canada. You could be the absolute worst writer in the history of mankind...you could have written the worst story ever told in the history of mankind but if you are in Canada sooner or later you will get someone to throw some money your way.

Hammer is an 80 minute movie that feels like 4 hours. The Turkish film industry makes movies that are 3-4 hours long. Take the absolute worst Turkish movie ever made and it would still be better than Hammer. The script is clearly inspired by Breaking Bad. Will Patton is like Walter White if all you ever wished for was to punch Walter White every two minutes. The mother in this movie is so irritating that you would come to love Skylar White. Both father & mother combine to raise two of the biggest donkeys in cinematic history.

I personally think that Canadian movies should not be allowed to cross the border. If its funded by some silly organization in Canada it should be contained within Canada. Everyone who watched the movie is now dumber coz Canada sponsored a script that is almost as good as the entire storyline of the nursery rhyme "Jack & Jill".

Who are these people who make these type of movies? Why doesn't someone stop them? Who are these people who write these scripts? These are the kind of people who should be cursed like the tower of babel so that they dont speak/write the dialect of human beings anymore.
