Enjoyable if not plausible
on 5 September 2014
If like me you can get past the lack of plausibility and can accept a fair bit of poetic license you may well find The Serpent to be an enjoyable thriller. To be fair this film genre would always struggle to get five stars from me and may well be suited to someone who prefers Hollywood action thrillers.
It isn’t a film that I will be visiting again since once one knows the plot there will be no more surprises, but I would say the acting is good as is the directing as well as the sound and cinematography.
The DVD comes with some extra features: Making Of The Serpent; Interview With Director Eric Barbier; Interview With Producer Eric Jehelmann; Interview With Olga Kurylenko; Theatrical Trailer.
I would recommend this film to anyone who can pick up a cheap copy.
