The only redeeming thing about this movie is that it is short but unfortunately it still manages to drag it’s way to the finish line.
Poor script, terrible acting and laugh out loud special effects. I understand budget constraints and B movie status but really why bother when this manure is the best you can come up with. A little bit of research and a bit more care and attention to detail might have made it a bit less awful but why bother if this is the best that you aspire to… the director’s philsophy obviously.
A Disastrous Fantasy: Ouch… That Hurt… Are My Eyes Bleeding?
I love disaster movies, they’re one of my favourite forms of light entertainment. They are full of improbable probabilities about the future of our planet; that at their best, make us take note and think, what if(?) At their worst, they usually make you laugh, even though it’s unintentional.
So when I read that the writer, Meyer Shwarzstein with screenwriters Joe D’Ambrosia and Tom Teves had added a fantasy element I thought I’d give it a go…
The mistake was mine. My imagination had already given life to the synopsis… The film falls woefully short in every way.
Firstly, the acting was so awful I was wishing the cast would die off quicker. Even Frankie Muniz, who has proved he can act was terrible. The only decent actor in the whole film was Barry Bostwick who does a great job of portraying a constant gin drinking, wash-up, slightly sleazy, lounge piano player. It’s because of Bostwick the film got the rating it did from me.
Secondly, the director handles the story material ludicrously. There is no way anybody is going to believe any of this modern fantasy tale. I know it’s meant to be lighthearted and comedic but it even misses here. There are too many holes and continuity errors that are glaringly obvious, as well as some impossible situations. These are evident in other disaster films, though in this movie they are less forgivable because of how the story is handled. The pace and flow are so muddled it gives the movie a disjointed feel.
Thirdly, the special effects, are way below average. Though most movies of this ilk are low-budget the effects are usually well created and carried out to maximise the power and atmosphere of destruction. However, in this film they are so unrealistic my attention was actually broken, as I shook my head in disgust.
The writers and directors of this film should have watched Sharknado and others of a similar vein; then they would’ve had some idea on how to handle the subject material.
I couldn’t in all good conscience recommend this film to anyone. Though if you find yourself kidnapped by Jigsaw and forced to watch this movie then you can take some solace in the fact that at least Barry Bostwick may keep you from going insane…
