Too thin to pass as provocation or drama.
| Original Score: 2/5
Except for standout Adam Best, the cast aren't sharp enough to pull off the curious, unwieldy conceit of having two sets of actors play fictitious people.
A pseudo-documentary thriller in the Blair Witch Project manner, Blooded centres with something less than total conviction on a quintet of dislikable upper-middle-class blood sports enthusiasts.
Is it all based on fact or a complete fiction? Who knows, and do we ultimately care?
A hokey idea, and badly botched.
| Original Score: 1/5
It's a compelling idea but there's no suspense or character interest.
Sometimes the best condition of mind in which to view a new film is mild idiocy. I was fooled.
| Original Score: 3/5
A compelling look at extremism in all its guises, Blooded boasts some genuine scares despite a narrative structure that allows little room for surprises.
While the dramatic cast work well, authenticity is slightly diminished by the fact that the interviewees - though clearly different people - are also actors.
