This all amounts to nothing.
Yupp, that's about it. It's a movie without mission. A movie without point. For a long time that's how it felt, and I was wondering if that one guy wouldn't get interviewed at the hospital, everything fall in place and the happy ending come running... but then it took an unexpected turn.
Now that it's made clear what it's all about I realize they did it well. But would I have watched it if I knew? And would the message have come across if I didn't? Victims of a myriad of different school shootings all coming together in this one, meaningful, macabre dash of random violence... that was unexpected. That made you think.
Everything leading up to that however: not so good. Not the acting nor the special effects. Not the pace. Not the script. Considering the actors were all grouped up in such a special way I should give props, because they managed something special, but at the same time, no, this is not what I want to see, because they don't want me to want to see this either.
The intent seems to shine through in production, and considering they do want you to see this movie to get that message it's a strange journey, and one you'll only appreciate when it's over.
I appreciate the idea, but there's little redeeming value outside of that.
The plot's that of
a movie bootlegger stumbling into a theater of murder and madness after it's taken over by a demonic hit man.
Big Daddy Kane's the only name I recognize in the cast, and it's a bit spooky how the killer is never revealed. Who was he, really? Interesting watch, even if it's more for the message than the movie itself.
rated 2/5: decent
