Though it looks like a highly polished, quasi-avant-garde bit of speculative fiction, contemporary French sci-fi flick Eden Log is really a far-flung descendant of the Heavy Metal comics of the '70s and '80s.
A passable French sci-fi film, but far from great.
Eden Log is frustrating to follow and has a protagonist almost completely devoid of personality, but Vestiel does have a certain visual flair, even if in this case it seems more suited to a video game than a movie.
accepts no emotional stakes in its premise and gives the viewer only the simple task of reaching its finale
a dark treat which, far from patronising us with excessive exposition, leaves plenty of room in which the viewer can either wither or flourish
French SF effort that involves a copious amount of grunting . . .
EDEN LOG is visually stunning - it's a bleak trip into a world that both mesmerizing and terrifying.
Pitched between serious hard sci-fi and a mindless creature feature, it is mostly distinguished by its willingness to immerse its audience in its plot midstream.
Admittedly I don't tend to like sci fi anyhow,but this was dark (filmed, not tone), slow and dull.
I pretty enjoyed this Piece.
With a bigger budget and a more coherent plot this could've been a five star film but as it stands its still a well done bleak sci-fi thriller from France.
Nope. Didn't care for this one. It was way too dark. And by dark I mean I couldn't see anything. I was getting lost in trying to figure out what I was supposed to be seeing on the screen and then I started getting lost in what the heck was supposed to be the point of the movie. We don't even get told whats going on until the end and even that seems like the writer covering his butt for a confusing script.
Not good. Don't waste anytime on this one.
