Well Acted, but Cliched and too Contrived.,

This review is from: The Sins [DVD] (DVD)
Since this series of seven plays featuring each of the seven deadly sins in turn is neither a comedy nor a tragedy it falls, somewhat ludicrously, between the proverbial two stools. Considering that most of the acting is of a high quality, this is a great pity.
Worse still, the series grows more tedious as it progresses. In fact, at times, it becomes quite laboured. Discerning viewers may well ask: 'Where's all this getting us?' The fact is, it's a good idea which doesn't quite come off. Fortunately, many viewers will not be too bothered about this and will enjoy the splendid acting and play off between the various characters.
However, if you're tired of clichéd characters and predictable situations, this disc is not for you. Some people, however, will love it for all kinds of reasons and it's nice to think that they will. Because of this I'm giving it four stars and deducting just one to represent those who, like myself, will find it all far too contrived.
