Daphne Rhodes is a down-on-her-luck California girl just off the bus in a Midwestern city is starting completely over. She has no friends there and dim prospects until she meets Rex English, a wealthy financier whose suave nature is exceeded only by his persistence. Rex is immediately smitten, relentless in his pursuit and does Daphne a huge favor. But what does he want in return? What looks like it could be a fairy-tale meeting and love story turns sour when the two are caught by his wife, leading to a shocking turn of events. Daphne's already bleak future is put in further jeopardy, but there is the possibility of a huge payoff if she can just work through the unexpected mess. Who can she trust? Her decision leads her right into the pit of an unspeakable and macabre hell. At first, it was about finding the right person and possibly making some money. Ultimately, all that will matter to her is staying alive.Written by
You know something's wrong when the minute the film starts you can;t stand what your hearing.
"Zero Absolution" is a pretty straight forward story about Daphne, a girl from California who plans to start a new life and ends up finding a lot of jerks, perverts and stingy citizens who don't lend her a hand or give her a break. Things all change when a guy by the name of Rex sweeps his way into Daphne's life and turns everything in her life into everything she had hoped for....but finds out the hard way Rex and the life he promised her is not what she thought it would be. What follows is a messy turn of events that makes Daphne question everything she's ever done and how to emerge from this mess unscathed.
The audio is atrocious, it's either painfully loud or disruptively too low to hear; forcing you to constantly adjust your volume settings to either being too low or too loud to understand. If anyone had actually approached a woman with Rex's "charms" and pick up lines, he;'d probably get maced right off the bat. The dialog is as bare bones generic as you can possibly get. It's terribly paced, the jokes don't work and the chemistry is non-existent. Nothing works here, no one works in it, no one works together and nothing in this film works. Even the most dramatic turn design to build and explode tension into full blown conflict fails miserably to come off as believable. I feel like no one knows who they are supposed to be or who they are supposed to be playing, it's a live on the walk badly put together play with someone just carrying a giant microphone during the windiest season imaginable and hoping for things to play out much more cohesively than it actually is.
This movie killed my ears, drained my energy and just disappointed everything in every part of me. I tried, I really did but just no.
