Never seems to get on a coherent meaningful track.

what could have been a deep and introspective movie becomes a follow-the-stolen-drugs-through-the-crowded-streets action flick

Audience Reviews for The Tesseract


I can't remember much about this film except that I found it tedious and I didn't see it that long ago.

Tesseract does look good -- it is stylish and colorful. The characters, however, have little depth and show no real growth. The actors, especially the Thai kid, do a good job with inadequate material. The storyline is trite and never surprises you; giving it a more exotic setting than usual just isn't enough. While it was mildly enjoyable, given some of the talent that was involved, it was disappointing.

I really couldn't sit through this. I watched it over the course of 6 days. I just couldn't get into it, but had to finish it.
