Critic Reviews for Good for Nothing
Beauty and the Beast meets Sergio Leone in this amusing Western import.
A droll New Zealand parody with a tone so deadpan it becomes laugh-out-loud funny.
The film's antipodean locales provide plenty of uncharted territory, vast expanses of untamed land that offer endless opportunity but little guidance. A man could get lost out there, and Wallis does.
Good for Nothing has a nice comic sense of the brushfire eruptions of Western violence...
Audience Reviews for Good for Nothing
Unfortunately, Good For Nothing's references and aspirations are a bit higher than what is actually on the screen.
Mike Wallis' Good for Nothing isn't good for much.
Part of the story is fit for a comedy, but this film isn't funny at all, which includes the scenes where it seems like it's trying to be. The plot really takes a while to pick up with very little in the way of dialogue; by the time the lead characters reveal a portion of themselves, it is already deep into the film and it seems late, granted the run time is just under 90 minutes.
The western style shootings aren't exciting or stylized much in any way shape or form, which probably pushes them toward the realistic side of things, despite some terrible aiming from the shooters.
For most of the film, there is no hero and the villains are just plain forgettable. Cohen Holloway and Inge Rademeyer do show some potential, but the writing really holds them back.
There isn't much to say about Good for Nothing, except to let it be and take a chance on something else.
