Critic Reviews for 11-11-11
If the ineffectiveness knob goes up to ten, this film manages to turn it up to you-know-what.
If only "11-11-11" had arrived a little closer to Thanksgiving - the turkey connection would have been entirely appropriate.
One and one (and one and one and one and one) never quite add up to two.
Despite a good lead performance and a few cool ideas, 11-11-11 is also packed with a lot of airy chit-chat that either repeats established ideas or simply goes nowhere.
With 11-11-11, Darren Lynn Bousman is merely insulting the audience with this poor excuse for a plot and its ludicrous ending
Audience Reviews for 11-11-11
I'm partial and a half to director Darren Lynn Bousman, Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Devil's Carnival are two of my favourite group-watching experiences, his work in the Saw franchise totally worked for me, his entries II & IV are two of my favourites in the series. and he's very committed to the horror genre which I hold dear to my heart. But 11-11-11 is crap. There are actually a couple of moments I really liked. There's some crazy practical effects and some awesome lighting, and even some genuinely creepy shots, but those are the sort of things that make a good film better, not a bad film good. The story overall is disjointed, but even watching individual scenes unfold is confusing and unbelievable. Lead character Joseph seems to forget the life-saving act he was engaged in in one room the second that he enters the next. And these aren't even the largest of the films problems. But hey, at least it's better than 11/11/11.
An entertaining flick, it is constantly making you jump with cheap scares, but I still enjoyed that. I am not a fan of the ending, but I had fun with it up to that point so I am not going to hold that against it. It is a decently acted but weak script. Still it was just a horror movie and I was in the mood for a horror movie, it was good, but don't expect it to leave a lasting impression other than you got a few jumps out of it and were entertained.
