Critic Reviews for Static
Any appreciation of the film will come after it's over and you might say, "oh, that's why that happened." I'm not sure the ending is worth the time invested.
[Blu-ray Review] One of those movies where none of the pieces quite fit when the viewer thinks back on them, "Static" takes a crafty idea, but debuting director-cowriter Todd Levin doesn't always play fair with the audience.
Audience Reviews for Static
The color and contrast of both the 3D and 2D was very poor. Most of the film was in drab, dark, subdued scenes. Even the lighted indoor scenes and daylight scenes lacked color and vibrancy. The storyline made no sense until the characters themselves had to explain the plot at the end of the film. I fast-forwarded through parts of the movie that was unbearably slow. Time invested was a waste of time.
Jacobs ladder meets the sixth sense only boring and with no imagination....other than that it's a well done farce of a movie.
A rather typical home-invasion film (think Them, The Strangers, Funny Games, You're Next, etc.) that tries to incorporate an original twist on the genre, Static is a well-made horror film with some decent talent, but it fails to really develop the tension or deliver upon its premise.
