A Film So Bad It Could Be Used To Cure Insomnia!,
This review is from: Dark Storm (DVD)
I have to admit I watched it to the very end - barely -without falling asleep!
This is not a repulsively bad movie, just an annoying one! The acting is so universally horrible, I said to myself, "I could do a better job - where do I sign-up?" This thought entered my mind so often I started wondering how much these godforsaken actors where paid for their severe lack of skills! For them it must be a thrill to know you at least made it to DVD, even if you never made it to the big screen! But for the rest of us watching Dark Storm it was terribly distracting!
The special effects were enjoyable and the fantasy element was interesting. It's a shame who ever directed and produced this film didn't pony-up some more bucks to get some real acting talent! This could have been a half-way decent sci-fi/fantasy film!
For a MUCH more entertaining approach to Science Fiction see:Zardoz and Enemy Mine and Fantastic Planet and A.I. - Artificial Intelligence (Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition) and Bicentennial Man and Galaxy Quest (Deluxe Edition)
