Audience Reviews for Limbo

How low can you go? Not much lower than this amateurish, pretentious, steaming heap of terrible. The main character is named Adam Moses, or crying out loud! Shot in "cinematic" black and white digital video, it wants to be "Run, Lola, Run" as directed by Ingmar Bergmann. Not even close. It's ponderous, preachy, frequently incoherent, rife with bad acting and incompetent dialogue. Flixster has the 2004 clunker directed by Thomas Ikimi mixed up with a 1999 film with the same name from John Sayles. Don't be confused, even though you'll probably want to forget Ikimi's cinematic miscarriage ASAP.

Hey! Why are they using the cover for the superior John Sayles film from 1999?

A good film that takes place in a small Alaskin village. This character study starring Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and David Srathairn shows a relationship between both a singer and a fisherman. What is lovely is that nothing is glamorized it is just examines a godo story between everyday people...well done film.
