I purchased this because I wanted to see another movie with Roselyn Sanchez. I think she's a talented actress, very beautiful, and I have enjoyed her in Without a Trace and Devious Maids. But this monstrosity is unfathomable. The voice-over narration is annoying and monotonous. There is no story or character development.
I watched it three times in succession, yet I still have no idea what the point was. I went to imdb and tried to give a chance before watching it a second time. Alas, this movie is hopeless. And what a shame for several fine actors that appear in it.
I was soooooo disappointed in this movie!!! The cheesy narration just killed it for me!!! I got tired of hearing the guy by the first 5 mins and found myself wishing, oh so hoping that he would JUST SHUT UUUUUUUPPPPPP!!!! The ONLY redeeming asset in this film is Roslyn Sanchez...she took all the pain away!!!
This review is for the Amazon VOD rental of this film. This film is very hit and miss. The film is well shot with some beautiful scenes. I found the narrative over every scene to be a drawback. The narrator/main character seems to speak non-stop without telling the viewer much of anything. I give the film high points on ambition but it fails to deliver on it. I have to say Roselyn Sanchez is a very good actress and such a lovely woman but even she can not overcome the material she is working with.
I am so sorry I was unable to see this 'Bigger than Life' movie in the theater on the Big Screen! The first time through this wonderful movie was a bit confusing for me. Thank goodness I could just play it again and experience it a second time in the comfort of my family room. Picking-up on the nuisance, subtle dialogue and humor required more than one viewing (for me); I was not prepared for all the action and "hidden messages". A true ART FILM and beautifully done! Anton Pardoe is FABULOUS and, of course, Roselyn Sanchez is beyond gorgeous/enchanting!
