Short n Sweet Movie Review- 9th November 2010

In Movies, Reviews on January 3, 2011 at 1:21 am



/A great question-asking B-movie tour-de-force, shows that, once again, a good premise carries unflashy presentation
/The woman is both nightmarish and a dreamgirl and as always Shinya Tsukamoto is an endlessly likable and highly skillful actor
/The soundtrack, although minimal, is well fitting for the dark, slow visual style. Some scares to be found here that may well stick with you
/An interesting film about loneliness, voyeurism and sanity with a thought-provoking resolution

$-$-$-$- – 3.9/5

/Don’t look upside-down for the whole length of the 3-minute duration and you might be sick all over your forehead
/Extremely weak composition with ridiculous mumbo-jumbo
/Twist is painfully weak but luckily will meet one of many peoples sentiments
/Like the real Devil is bad for the soul, this one will have a similar effect on Shyamalan’s crude crusade of redemption after a tense string of terrible movies

$- – – – – 1.1/5

/Not actually a better film than Casshern, just has more action scenes
/Leads are all strong, story isn’t great and attempted humour is weak
/Not quite inventive but always riveting and slickly produced action sequences
/Sumptuous visuals, some might say there’s occasional poor cgi but its always delivered with artistic flair, pleasant cinematography

$-$-$-$ – – £.8/5

/One of the only “hot-guy” movies that I enjoyed viewing and wasnt made to feel sick (others easily recollectable to me are the old Marky-Mark starring Fear and the recent Just Wright with Common)
/Fantastic script, direction, casting and pacing.
/Makes you question whether you really want to see violence and why, does a good job of keeping you guessing
/A masterfully gripping thriller from Alejandro Amenabar, I would be surprised to find this caper hasn’t got alternate iterations, worth seeking this one out

$-$-$-$- – 4.0/5
