Critic Reviews for Flooding With Love for the Kid

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (8)

  • A masterpiece of ingenuity.

    January 8, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Mr. Oberzan isn't going to win any acting awards with this project, which ultimately feels like a YouTube video that goes on too long, but he certainly establishes his film-editing credentials: the story stays remarkably clear.

    January 8, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • I feel like I understand what First Blood is really about much better after seeing this version.

    January 7, 2010
  • Oberzan is mostly successful in revitalizing the dime-store psychology and blood n' guts of First Blood through storytelling as childlike play.

    January 6, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film might play as a YouTube-y farce for a downtown audience, hard to say, but so far, it's the best movie of 2010.

    January 5, 2010 | Full Review…
  • While the premise might seem like a superficial YouTube stunt, the storytelling is crafty, compelling (falling from a cliff while being chased by a helicopter?!?) and heartfelt enough to explode all sense of cheeky irony.

Audience Reviews for Flooding With Love for the Kid

  • Nov 01, 2010
    A one man retelling of "First Blood" (more faithful to the original novel than the Stallone movie), with Zachary Oberzan playing dozens of roles and shooting the entire film in his NYC apartment for $96. This is really an amazing low budget achievement; Oberzan finds exactly the right tone, playing it seriously (his acting is very good, particularly as Teasle). He lets the cheap "special effects" (toy snakes, bookshelves with branches sticking out of them to represent trees) supply the comic relief, but you still find yourself drawn into the dramatic arc of the story. For a film made for less than $100 it's 5/5 stars; I think it's a compliment to call it 3/5 versus Hollywood competition. It's no masterpiece but it was more entertaining and impressive than most movies with 1,000,000 times the budget.
