Josh Keown’s review:
“Don’t go beyond the designated zones inside. It’s a wilderness here.”
-Ronny (Steve Waddington)
Urgh… this one went straight to video for good reason. By the way, i must point out the description of this film is terrible, and doesn’t really explain anything.
Whilst it isn’t really that bad, I suppose, it’s very strange. The soundtrack, sets and atmosphere all feels a little off and mismatched. The script is frequently abysmal. If it’s any consolation, the cinematography is often rather nice, and one of the few highlights in an otherwise average film. At one hour fifty it’s far too long, especially given the quality.
The acting fluctuates between being fairly good to criminally horrendous. Some cast members, such as Steve Waddington, are actually quite good, whilst others are absolutely atrocious. I won’t point fingers, as that would be mean (Yes, I’m looking at you Terence Knox! All you do is shout the whole film, with no reason).
Another big issue is the plot is very threadbare, the romance is needless and dire, and the one twist is predictable as sin. So all in all, a pretty ghastly affair with some positives, but still a thumbs down from me.
VERDICT; It’s alright guess, enough to keep you watching until the end - just. I would recommend it to… err, actually I’m not sure I would recommend it to anyone. Watch it if you want, but it’s pretty rubbish really.
2/5 or 4/10
