Not so alert production. Continuity is overlooked. Guns with open action continue to shoot without reloading. Doors open one shot and closed the next. Woman in heels, then in flats, back in heels. I didn't take notes on all that, I just remember there were a lot of stupid stuff that squeaked by.
Acting. Sorry guys. I can't believe any of you saying Danza is a great actor. I just don't see it. He only plays one character his entire life and that character is "Tony". It's hard to see past all the botox. Maybe that's why he can't act with emotion?
Either way, this show could of been better if the father role was given to, well let's say, anyone else.
But like anything else. If you get stoned enough, you will enjoy anything you watch. Just wish I was in a legal state to enjoy it as well.
This show aimed for space but falls short. It's merely a drama about normal people who may work for NASA. At least what I've seen in the first four episodes.
I did like the futuristic feel to the show with electronics. (But if you ever lost your voice, you'd be screwed in that reality)
The parts I hate most is the southern hick who narrates poetry.
These situations would never get this far, because people in real life actually talk, communication would of resolved many situations. Others like being nearly ran over could of been solved by going to the police. The vehicle side sideswiped the concrete barrier. A drug store gets ransacked...no surveillance camera? Brick thrown onto the back car windshield In a quiet clean neighborhood and no one heard it? Pictures taped to a chalkboard during school, no witnesses? Car windshield busted on school property. No surveillance, no security, no witnesses.
And the beginning of every show about getting help is a good thing. But being attached to an unrealistic drama? Would be better off running add during during the 5:00 Local/World News....
1. Bullets travel faster than sound. Therefore you would either hear the bullet hit an object next to you or hear it wiz past and then here the "bang".The further the distance the longer the separation. Anyone who has ever been shot at will never forget this sound. 2. As for when he used the silencer, yes, it may have muffled the "Bang" to an extent, but it's not going to make the bullet traveling through the air silent nor when it hits an object. 3. Sniper is "dug in" up in a tree, so he's not moving around. He had no Line-of-site to hit the cell phone on the selfie stick! Plus the sound came too far infront of the bullet hitting, he could of moved the cellphone before it even hit. LOL.
It's so backwards it's not funny. And it changed this movie into a comedy. God, I wish I lived in a "Legal THC" State so I could try to enjoy this movie...........
--Spoilers-- Here are some examples:
These people were chosen. tested, educated, selected as the cream of the crop. But every drama-filled event was sparked by stupidity. You can only do this so many times before it starts to drop your ratings.
The Leader. Wanted to sacrifice the 1 for the many. Then does a 180°, filling up his ship and attempting to leave "the many" behind. Only later to do another 180°, and stay behind for the 1 risking the lives of the many. How did this guy ever become leader? I'll ask Trump.
The dash across the vent field. Science, math nerds.. And no one thought it to be faster and safer to stop both vehicles the second the brake plug came loose. They had 2-way communication. Was already made clear the lighter vehicle was faster. Someone could of jumped out from the faster vehicle, plugged in the slower vehicle. Sent them back on their way. Electric vehicle took would of got them back up to speed quickly. And the faster vehicle would of caught back up. And then they still had some drama by racing before the times up. That would of been more believable.
Apex predaters. All the time spent on the planet and no one ran across them. Ok, fair enough. What parent in their right mind you let their kids do the collecting? Will radio? Come on. Volume at max level. He never should of been in there.
I just can't believe how these "Professionals" don't catch these bloopers. Do they even review what was just shot on camera? I'm just an average viewer looking to be entertained with a show that makes me feel like I'm there. But being constantly reminded by these bloopers popping up is a real let down.
This movie is just another typical Asylum Movie. Low budget, poor acting and directing. Boring. Special effects are a joke. Maybe if I lived in a state where pot was legal and I was high as a kite, I might find a movie like this or any Asylum movie entertaining? Probably still not.
This movie was their last chance to show me something good. They failed. I will no longer watch anything made by Asylum. I hope others who feel the same way do the same thing and not support them in any way.
But several scene's were a huge slap in the face! Do they not go back and review what they put together? It's just too HARD of a TARGET to forget!
One scene where one of "the dogs" is riding a motorcycle past Van Damme (who is behind a car). He starts to raise his front wheel up at the middle of the car. Next scene, he isn't riding a wheelie and Van Damme Kicks him in the face. Quickly changing to 3rd scene where Van Damme is standing behind car an the guy who was riding the wheelie goes over backwards (from the obvious continuation of scene one). Who's to blame for this? All this effort put into acting, special effects and filming and yet they just throw it together in the end? Sad. This was just one of the mistakes done. And no I don't look for them. I just like all movies to be believable, is that too HARD TARGET?
Still ignoring the slapping together of footage without reviewing, I liked the movie. Something to watch on a cold winter day.
This show isn't like that. A great show that silently gets cut. Who are these people who make these decisions? Too many shows get canceled without closure. Tera Nova was another great one. Jericho could of ran for years! Yet, they hype up Revolution, which was a bomb, that I'm sure they will try to run with it for years.
I really liked Persons Unknown. Last episode left me wanting to see more. Too bad the network didn't see it that way. Now days, if you don't have "C.S.I.", "reality show" or dumb slap stick comedy in it, it won't make the cut. It's sad!
But the bad guy, C'Mon. Matrix sun glasses, Cracking his next, the smirk, the attitude, talking like him. He even moved like him. It took away so much from the movie. I couldn't get The Matrix out of my head. Don't get me wrong, I loved the Matrix. I just don't like copied characters from other movies unless it was intended to be made that way.
But there is so much more to be read into this story. Mysterious Skin goes deep inside ones mind and makes you feel like you're involved somehow. Prepare to be "shocked" I know, I was. Great acting from everyone, in my opinion. I like how the movie directed. I would recommend this movie to anyone wanting to see "something different" I won't go any farther about the movie, Mysterious Skin. Because then this would turn into a spoiler and I would't want to spoil this movie for anyone interested in watching this movie. Anyways, it's hard to fill up a 10 line minimum and NOT give away some of the movie.
