Hmmm...very interesting and then rather tame...,
This review is from: The Nines [DVD] (DVD)I guess there must be something about this film because this is the first time I've written a review on here after several years of being an Amazon DVD rental person. I'm a great fan of Lost on TV and, for a long time, I was enjoying this film for the same reasons I enjoy Lost. There's lots here that makes this film a bit different. I loved all the cross-references and the gradual build of clues and then sideways movements of plot. There's quite a bit here for the film buff to show off with as well, as they do seem to reference a lot of other films or actors.
It was all going so well.
Now, no spoilers, but personally I was very let down by the ending. I just felt it took the easy way out and I wanted more. I know it wasn't the "easy way out" as it was the story all along, but I did feel disappointed after enjoying it all so much until then. Hence the three stars.
Worth a watch and it will give you something to talk about with your friends for a while afterwards, so that's got to make it worthwhile. But I just hope Lost doesn't end in the same kind of way.
