Schumacher can't keep himself from the kind of vibey camera and editing flourishes that facilitate only viewer numbness...
Plays like a melodramatic rip-off of Bret Easton Ellis books about insufferable kids obsessed with money, drugs and themselves.
Overburdened with too many characters and a manufactured conclusion, "Twelve" wastes a solid performance by Chace Crawford.
Give Schumacher credit for making a movie that is, at the very least, unique in its failure.
The film version of Twelve is quite the opposite of the book, a dull and thoughtless ride with a sad excuse for a climax.
An unsavory piece of dreary, mindless ick from a director who can't seem to get his act together these days. That is, if he ever had an act to begin with.
One of the characters...astutely describes herself as 'shallow and narcissistic.' So's the movie.
Another disappointing portrait of rich spoiled kids based on an estimable novel, though you can't blame the actors for the shallow, glitzy tale, directed by Joel Schumacher.
Audience Reviews for Twelve
- Narrator: So you're born in the capital of the world and you can never escape. And that's how it is because that's how everyone wants it to be. It is all about want. No one needs anything here. It is about when you wake up in the morning and the snow is already coming down and it's bright between the buildings where the sun falls but already dark where the shadows are. And it's all about the want. What do you want? Because if you don't want something you've got nothing. You are adrift. You're washed away and then buried under the snow in shadow. And when in the spring the snow melts, no one will remember where you were frozen and buried. And you will no longer be anywhere.
- Narrator: You will not be remembered if you die now. You'll be buried and mourned by a few and what more can you ask for? The world will spiral from underneath you and you are either too smart or too dumb to find God. Maybe you are angry. Only because the way out is through love. And you are just horny and lonely.
- Sara: I have lots of boyfriends. I mean, I'm not a slut. But, different guys are interesting for different reasons. You're interesting for a very specific reason.
