"Dopamine" is a very slow moving movie. I bought it at "Hollywood Video" for $1.06 and I think I paid too much. A large part of the movie revolves around a little yellow bird named Koy Koy. Koy Koy is a character in a computer program. The graphics used to create the bird are very similar to the graphics in "Avatar". OOPS. I didn't mean to say "Avatar"; I meant "Pong". After I watched the movie, I put it in my box for Goodwill donations. This movie lasts 85 minutes. There is one positive thing I can say about this movie and I will add it to this review as soon as I think of something.
A good story, asks genuine questions, and performed fairly well.
Overall, this film is a little too indie/hipster. The science in this film (the source of its title) is just poorly-researched, badly-explained techno-babble. The film stumbles over itself when explaining the "chemistry" referenced in the title, often reducing the biochemistry of love to obvious stereotypes (e.g. "lots of testosterone"). Seeing as the entire film revolves around this topic (the biochemistry of love)... well, you get the idea. As a previous reviewer has said of the film, "poor execution killed it right off the bat". ... (but as a fan of "Sliders", I enjoyed Sabrina Lloyd's performance. Coincidentally, "Sliders" also takes place in San Francisco.)
maybe it's interesting if you've never heard of the chemistry behind love before, but this left me a little bored. the parts with the computer programmers draggggged. it picked up when the lead actress was on the screen but got then it got to be too much *talking* about love vs. chemistry rather than *showing* it.
It is a very interesting concept that love is not an emotion but a hormonal output- a reaction to the action.
Strange, but romantic. Nice to watch.
Conceptually interesting, poorly executed. Sabrina Lloyd is adorable though.
Interesting story. Kind of geeky and mushy and sexual tension.
The idea sounded nice, but poor execution killed it right off the bat. There are too many ideas and points the director/writer wants to get across to the audience in such a short amount of time that you're often left wondering "What's the ULTIMATE message here?"
And the love between the two leads was kind of unbelievable and seemed a little fake. And random plot and character twists coming out of nowhere didn't help much either...
