Rewatching it as part of a mini-marathon of older court room movies. This movie is powerful yet sad. If you haven't seen it since 8th grade social studies you need to rewatch this classic.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The pointlessness of Dante's life is the point of the story.
Watching Clerks, besides some amusement at the primordial Kevin Smith writing and directing, I was struck with a sense that the story didn't know where it was going. Nothing in the story contributed to the advancement of the characters until the final 15 minutes which completely saved my opinion of the film.
Its ending is both nihilistic yet motivating.
The Most B Movie that ever B'd.
Beginning is fun.
Middle drags a bit.
Last 40 minutes are a blast.
More gore than you'd expect.
-Monster fights/destruction a A+
Everything else... C-
The villains are cartoonish but aren't as distracting as some of the reviewers have claimed.
Would recommend for a good time especially for monster movie fans. This is a real PG-13 film I wouldn't recommend for kids under 12 or 13.
