Good and Bad Movie... Sort of...
on January 4, 2014
The acting was pretty bad for the most part - either way over the top (the japanese boss who is so apoplectic that he spits when he talks) or very wooden. There were rare glimmers of brilliance (like when Jeanette Steiner concocts a sassy response when asked how she met Shane) but overall the script tended to be rather trite. It really looks like a film school students first effort, and not a great effort at that.
Yet...I actually felt compelled to watch this film to the end. I think the reason is that the basic story is well conceived, if not well executed, and Michael Madison puts in a performance that is (just) good enough to make you care about his character.
