contrived, superficial, tedious,
This review is from: The East [DVD] (DVD)
setting aside the theme.... the film falls well-short of compelling. there's no tension, mystery or thrill. the story line bumbles along without much conviction and fails to develop interest. fast forward the through the really tedious bits.
returning to the theme, the script is juvenile in structure and content, which contributes significantly to the film's failings. characters are bland and superficial. it's a shame for the one or two real actors having to manage with such poor material.
for the environmentally aware pre/young teen an interesting movie perhaps.
