English- Independent Comedy

Now when I said that I’ve been watching ridiculous independent movies, I don’t think that I had yet realized what that meant.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

A moving story that tell the tale of two friends as they travel across Europe.  The general plot arc is fairly clear, but the sub-plots get a little crossed.

Acting: 1.5/2

Pretty good, especially considering that the leads have to carry most of the scenes.  They are up to the task, but some of the smaller roles aren’t quite up to the task.

Photography/Set: 1/2

The shooting style is fine, pulling off most dramatic notes without a snag.  however, I can’t help thinking that the “set” design is a little bit of a cheap cop-out at times.

Sound/FX: 2/2

A very cool effects style that, if nothing else, makes the film very interesting to look at from an aesthetic standpoint.

Misc: 1/2

Good, but not quite all there.  I feel like it could have been a lot more, and that parts of the plot aren’t always clearly explained to the viewer.

VERDICT: 7/10

Good if you’re looking for a campy, quirky, independent comedy.  Not good if you’re looking for something else, I suppose.
