Really low budget, really flat performances and really uninteresting. How can a movie with some luminary musicians (mostly past their prime.. but still!) be so tiresome?
The plot seems mostly irrelevant and the characters randomly disjointed in looks and personalities. I really couldn't figure out the point. For a 2010 re-release the film looked like early 80's VHS and the image is gritty and distractingly low quality. Maybe there was nothing left to improve on but still I can't believe that was the best transfer possible.
A very brave attempt that mostly hits what it aims for. Sadly the plot aims rather low with a tired road trip/lost love story that makes little sense but is enough to move the story forwards. The big problem is in the supporting cast who just don't work and cant make anything special out of their oddball characters.. oh and some horrible green-screen early on which thankfully is soon dropped. Kinda fun in this age of genre deconstruction and fun for zombie fans but no-one else.
Excruciating updating of Rear Window in the most insipid ways possible. While pandering to every 2000's teen expectations of passionless thrillers it's obvious that the only person who cared about the movie was Shia, whose performance is far above anything the movie deserved and the only thing that keeps it afloat.
