Audience Reviews for Threat
Poor production, poor editing, and poor cast aside, Threat is an ultra indie film with a chip on it's roughly hewn shoulder. But this grim and gritty tale of nihilism needs more structural coherence to convey its message effectively.
An independant movie that looks and feels like an independant movie. Shaky camera work, amateur actors and heavy handed script dialogue from writers who want to make obvious points. The points here... Jim is a nihilist who doesn't care about anything, His co-worker Fred is a poetic conspiracy theorist. We get by on Fred and Jim's debates for a while. We meet Fred's drinking buddies and his family. And we meet Jim's straight edge gang of youths. Well, the two clans eventually come together- and they don't like each other much. The best part of the movie is the last scene. An epilogue about what a couple of our stars do with their lives after the dust of this movie settles. It looks like a thoroughly more entertaining film, which doesn't help but underline the problems that we get in the main film.
