Blackwoods is all affected 'style,' not intelligent or clear enough to pull off its grand vision. When the final act twists come they don't feel so much shocking or intelligent as just ridiculous.

Crudely executed by all hands, Blackwoods is--true to its title--an overreaching blur.

Two-bit potboiler.

Boll uses a lot of quick cutting and blurry step-printing to goose things up, but dopey dialogue and sometimes inadequate performances kill the effect.
