Audience Reviews for The Green Wall

Video: 1/10 The lighting is just awful. Every scene is either extremely underexposed or overexposed. It's almost as if done on purpose how consistently bad it is. The actual camerawork isn't too bad, but many shots are out of focus or poorly framed, so I can't justify a higher score. Plot: 4/10 This is the only upside to the movie. While it's a broken narrative, often intruded by non sequiturs, its at least decent. The main problem is that the characters have no arc. The father cries at the end; that's his full characterization. Everyone else remains completely static. Sound: 0/10 The first talkies had better sound than this film. It was painful to watch because of the sound design. Overall: 1/10
