Audience Reviews for Heaven's Burning

½

Heaven is burning down the discotheque - discotheque, let's shake it. I hate the heck out of contemporary music and ironically, I'm probably the only one who gets that contemporary song reference. Seems appropriate, seeing as I'm also the only person who's heard of this film, something that was obvious enough without the 2 day search for a video of it. Well, maybe it was a pretty popular film, only everyone forgot about it. It's doesn't have much memorability about it. Translation: This might be a bad review.

This film suffers from some lack of development, some inconsistancies in storyline and character roles, some abrupt events, some improveable choices in casting, some weak writing, some cheesiness and some overacting by some smaller cast members. Is that enough "some"s, ladies and gentlemen or do I need "some" more. Also, let us not forget that there is a ton of gratuitous violence and death. That poor robber, driving woman, gun provider, dog, crazy motorized wheelchair guy, farmer and kangaroo. I guess I'm gonna stop the list there, because I'm only allowed to type 25000 characters. I exaggerate, but this film does get pretty crazy. But seriously though, as flawed as the film is, it is saved by a good story, the occasional good line, a decent ending and decent performances from Crowe and Kudoh.

Ultimately, this film is like this review, not terrible, but not terribly great. Of course, the difference is that I expected this review to be bad, where with this film, I expected it to just be the somewhat underwhelming and understandably overlooked piece on Russell Crowe's filmography that it turned out to be. Still, as forgettable as it is, if you happen to come across "Heaven's Burning" - and boy, talk about a big "if" - then it's worth watching, thanks to the enjoyable story and decent performances by the leads. Also, after seeing those mutton chops, I say that they should definately get Russell Crowe if they're ever gonna do an Elvis biopic. Heck, he's got the bloating down now-a-days. Seems like I always need to bring up either Russell's getting out of shape or phone throwing. Anyone think he'd like me?
