Beset by bad lighting, limited visual imagination and acting so wooden it might have termites.
The ear-numbing dialogue explains (and explains) rather than dramatizes, though, and the performances are earnest and flat
The film is sunk by a pervasive stasis, the byproduct not of mood but of the filmmakers' amateurish abilities. If there's one thing Nick and Disney know, it's that youthful entertainment needs to keep moving.
Do-nothing Sarah may be the dullest, most featureless and inactive protagonist in recent movies -- great news for those Scooby-Doo die-hards who never got enough Freddy.
Clocking in at just over eighty minutes, Sarah Landon is a filmmaker's clinic in consistency: how to be consistently awful.
Landon won't be a household name any time soon...
Middle school-level dialogue and acting -- like a young-adult novel written by junior high kids rather than for them -- don't help.
Someone must have greenlit this one without realizing it doesn't have a ghost of a chance.
...awkward in a high-school-drama-club way...
Clumsy, tween-focused thriller wastes potential.
The filmmaking is borderline incompetent -- the acting varies from okay to awful, the cinematography is unpleasantly soft and the tone is badly misjudged.
Either flush with cash or in possession of incriminating photographs of a Freestyle Releasing executive, somehow this family pushed their tween mystery into a theatrical release this weekend, despite making a picture almost completely devoid of polish.
This was not as bad as I thought that this would have been. You have to kind of remember the target audience for this one as well as it seemed to be more of a young female pre teen audience. With that being said, this was better than I thought. Thje acting was on the kind of poor side and the climactic ending wasn't all that climactic, but it did have some decent moments of tension and a decent story line to go with this.
How in the unholy hell did this not premiere on ABC Family and then vanish?
