Comments– This one surprised me in a few ways. First off, I didn’t expect…anything from it all, and was delivered a fairly good movie. And the ending surprised me as well- it wasn’t an “OMG!!!11one!one1” moment, but it was well done. This, for those that don’t know, is a movie about chemical warfare, and dirty bombs that have gone off in California, polluting the area with deadly chemicals. Some complaints that Bidgette had were that the movie stayed in pretty much one location the entire time, we weren’t able to see what was actually going on in the rest of the city, and it that it dragged on too much. I was intrigued from the start, however, so that is just a matter of differing opinions. It is on Netflix Insant Queue, so if you have access to it, it is worth a look. Could the characters have been established better? Yes. Could we have gotten more of the story around the city and country? Maybe. Could they have explained who was attacking and why? Of course! But, that doesn’t mean that this isn’t a good movie, and one that you should give a shot. Just don’t come in with high (or any) expectations, and then maybe you won’t be disappointed. Good-Mediocre.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
