2.0 out of 5 stars Plot Holes Make for a Disappointing Movie March 24, 2011
By Compay
Format:DVD
Siren is a step above the film quality of most straight-to-video movies, but a weak story plagued with plot holes makes for a confusing film.

Siren tells the story of a group of friends who make a weekend getaway by sailing the coast. They discover a secluded island with an injured man, and a mysterious woman with a dark secret. The longer they remain on the island, the more the friends experience a twisted blur between nightmares and reality.

The good news about the movie is that it was filmed entirely off the coast of Tunisia in Northern Africa, so we're treated to beautiful scenes of the beach and ocean. Director Andrew Hull has a few other low-budget movies under his belt, and the production quality of Siren is a bit better than most Redbox flicks. Despite most of the cast having only appeared in a few obscure movies, they do a decent job in this film.

The bad news is that the film is filled with plot holes. Even the first five minutes of the film, before the sailing trip begins, includes a creepy bathroom scene that is never explained nor revisited. While some mystery is good, and can create suspense, the film becomes annoying near the conclusion due to a lack of explanations. Even the dialogue stops making sense as the movie draws to a close.

Keep in mind that this movie doesn't really reflect the Sirens of Greek mythology, so even knowing their story doesn't give you the full picture. The only way I discovered what the plot was really about was by checking out the deleted scenes in the DVD extras. For reasons that I'll never understand, a clip titled "Tale of the Siren" was removed from the movie. It offers an explanation of who the mysterious girl is, her connection to one of the travelers, and why tragedy befalls visitors to the island.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Poorly Constructed Film Filled With Holes April 3, 2011
Format:DVD
For the most part, the reviewer who stated that this movie had major plot holes is 100% correct. This movie makes no sense. It is based on the premise that rescuing people can be dangerous. The filmmakers may have tried to create the suspense of movies like "Triangle," as the film starts out on a boat (well, after a role-playing scene in the desert that makes absolutely no sense anyway), and then ends up on an island. On the island, it turns into a snooze-fest. Nothing happens until the very end, and the reason for the ending was never really explained. Looking at the cover art for the movie, you'd expect to see a ton of nudity and gore, and there is absolutely none. At least it could have been suspenseful, but the writers/directors couldn't even give us that. And it was so poorly acted that the transitions between visions and reality could not even be depicted at times by those viewing the film. This is easily one of the worst films so far in 2011.

1.0 out of 5 stars So boring June 13, 2011
By Kat
Format:DVD
This was so boring. The quality of the film and the acting weren't bad. But nothing happened really other then weird hallucinations or something. I don't even know cause its never explained. I was just utterly bored for the ENTIRE movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not interesting May 3, 2011
Format:DVD
First of all, don't be fooled by the cover art. Other than one quick, largely anti-climactic scene, there's no correlation with the cover and the movie contents. Second, while the concept was generally interesting, it completely lacked punch throughout. The movie was definitely professionally done and has high production values, but the film just meanders scene to scene without bringing it all together, resulting in one blah bit after another. Additionally, the film tries to create a sense of constant confusion due to the siren affecting the characters thoughts. While this idea had great promise, it also fell flat. Rather than creating dramatic confusion and unease, it created simple actual confusion that unnecessarily and completely devolved the film into a incomprehensible narrative. To some degree, its almost worth a rental, especially if you've gone through the usual fare, just don't expect a great story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Siren warning May 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The cover is of something that doesn't happen in the film - no bikini clad knife wielding babes.

Disconnects abound in this film. From the very start Rachel (Anna Skellern) stands alone on a desert highway in a sexy red dress. She's hitchhiking. She's picked up by Ken (Eoin Macken) and as they drive along she places a hand between her legs. He catches sight of this and they almost drive off the road.

They pull over and she goes into a bathroom stall. He follows. They go to make love only she sees a mysterious man's face. There's no man in any other stall. And there's the next disconnect. The vision of the man leads to nothing.

Further, Rachel and Ken know each other and were play-acting a role of hitchhiker and driver. They don't even continue their love-making. They just change into other clothes and move on down to a port.

This film's full of these things that lead nowhere.

Along with Marco (Anthony Jabre) they sail till they are lured to an island who's sole living occupant, Silka (Tereza Srbova) - the Siren of the title leads them into realms of unreality where they're not sure what's real and what's not.

Then the film becomes more confused!

Silka and Rachel slip off their clothes and skinny-dip, but you only see them from behind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice choice for Macken fans
Starts a little slow, the ending is good if a bit predictable. And wondering if Eoin Macken is going to take off all his clothes after the first few scenes does keep you engaged.

Okay, maybe a song or two. But no good acting, a really dull and pointless story that makes no sense and could have been so much more.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good start
This started off good, but towards the end got kind of B-movie-ish. Watch it with your girl/guy and create you're own "ending" about half way through, you won't miss anything.
