Rock Slyde- July 21st

Rock Slyde (2009)
English- Comedy
Not Rated
Runtime- 86 min.
dir. Chris Dowling

Patrick Warburton is on the cover.  ‘Nuff said.

Story/Writing: 1/2

A very clear indie feel is prevalent throughout, but not too overbearing.  Warburton plays the hard-headed detective Rock Slyde, a man a bit behind the times in several respects.  A little predictable, but some of the jokes are pretty funny if you like dry humor.

Acting: 1.5/2

Andy Dick pretty much brings down any movie he’s in (see: The Hebrew Hammer), but thankfully he isn’t on-screen that much this time around.  Jason Alexander has a pretty funny random cameo that I wasn’t expecting.  Patrick  Warburton.

Photography/Set: 1/2

Feels kind of made-for-TV and simple, seemingly as an excuse for modernity.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Okay soundtrack, but some of the digital effects would have been better to be replaced by practical ones.

Misc: 1.5/2

Falls just short of being really good.

VERDICT: 6.5/10

Worth a watch for real Warburton fans such as myself, pretty skippable for anyone else.
