Audience Reviews for Earthbound

At age eleven, Joe (Spall) learns from his dying father (Morrissey) that he is in fact an alien from a far off world. He must find a human mate but only one in every million earth girls are compatible. When Maria (Murray) enters his life, he realizes she is one such girl but there are forces at work trying to scupper his romantic plans.
As an Irish movie fan, it depresses me how awful my country's cinematic output is. For some inexplicable reason, we just don't seem capable of creating average, let alone great, cinema. We're known around the world for our sense of humor yet comedy is the one genre we constantly fail at. Brennan's film doesn't contain one single laugh in its strained running time. It looks slightly better than the average Irish film thanks to a nice use of color but that's really all it has going for it.
