Trivia

Loosely based on show except the show had no killing. See more »

Goofs

The first half of the movie, Mitch is seen wearing a blue button-up shirt. But after the cheating side-plot is revealed, it inconspicuously changes to a red polo T-shirt. Despite no scene showing that he had a shirt under the button-up nor him taking off the button-up off. Just one second blue shirt, the next red shirt. See more »

Quotes

Mitch: Honey. I got, I got hit by a car. It was awful. But it made me realize something. I don't wanna be with Kara. I want you. I love you, Beth.
Beth: I want a divorce.

Not Enough Heart
23 August 2019 | by HighFlyer_15See all my reviews

The idea of FNAF on the big screen could totally work but it doesn't when the movie tries to convince you that these robots are so advanced that they can move like humans in some scenes and in other scenes they move like, well, robots(with added robot sounds). Going from incredibly fluid motions to a poor man's robot dance breaks the immersion of "killer robots on the loose" and it just ends up feeling like a movie about guys in suits having had enough of their job and now they want to kill people.

The gore is fine whenever it's there. Some of the kills are very silly which is fine. And some of them are very poorly executed. A certain fire scene has the quality of a Youtuber who just figured out how to use After Effects for the first time.

The acting is quite bad. A few actors are doing what they can and pulling it off but most of the cast is really bad. The adult fans of the show are overacting to the point where it hurts to hear them speak. I get it, the older brother is meant to be awkward but it's taken to the next level with lines being spoken poorly.

The camera work is what saves the movie in my opinion. If whoever was behind the camera had done a worse job the movie would've been a 1* for me but it's not terrible in that regard.

Overall, I can see why some of the people in the review section love it but it's clear they can't see past their excitement and review the movie as a movie. I loved the Mortal Kombat Annihiliation movie as a kid but we all know how terrible that one is. And I love Venom as a movie but I'm not biased enough to say it's a master piece 10/10 like people here.
