Ok, so anyone who knows me know that i'm a fan of the band Joy Division and i've been listening to them since i was a teen. Although they didn't truly become my one of my favorite bands until i saw Control on my 20th birthday
Anyway, on to the review.
It should be pretty obvious what this film is about. You follow around Ian's life before Joy Division was formed right to his suicide on May 18th 1980. Pretty…
Oh hey! Review time!
Oh sorry about that. Anywa-
Hold on let me fix this.
There we go.
If you haven't already guessed, this film has jump scares. As with the previous Hammer horror film, you might wanna put on ear protection. It's very abrasive and loud. Funny considering the film's title. Because of the jump scares, this film just doesn't hold up like it should. You will envy deaf people.

Did i mention that our media (games in this case) get scapegoated? Cause they do, and this movie really isn't helping to diminish the thought that playing violent video games is a horrible thing.

Only God can forgive this dull mess.
I liked Drive but this is just, how shall i say it, dead. It feels like everything is pointless. I don't know why but it was decided that nobody would emote at all. Ryan Gosling in particular is blank the whole time.
I really can't care about the characters here. They're all terrible. So i ended up frustrated and bored the whole time. I apologize to any fans but i cannot like this one.
