News & Interviews for Zigzag
Critic Reviews for Zigzag
Mr. Goyer's loose, unaccountable direction is technically sophisticated in the worst way.
The movie, despite its rough edges and a tendency to sag in certain places, is wry and engrossing.
A great ensemble cast can't lift this heartfelt enterprise out of the familiar.
The character of ZigZag is not sufficiently developed to support a film constructed around him.
Goyer's screenplay and direction are thankfully understated, and he has drawn excellent performances from his cast.
Audience Reviews for Zigzag
This drama about a poor autistic kid with an abusive dad is decent, but it has a tendency to drag at times. The kid playing the autistic Zigzag is pretty good, the supporting cast is hit and miss. Goyer's directorial debut proves him competent but not exceptional, I think he is a better screenwriter.
(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] Interesting and with a good cast.
When Wesley Snipes first appears, you wonder, if there is going to be some tight action, or fight scenes that will be worth your while. However, you keep watching and then realize, Goyer must be related to an IRS agent. The lead character has been given little to no direction. There are facial ticks and speaking tendencies that appear and disappear, as if Goyer could't make up his mind how badly disabled the character should be. Leguizamo is totally impotent as the cancer ridden "big" that has the incredibly stupid idea of borrowing from a strip club loan shark to pay back money that his "little" stole, but no one knows he stole it, so, huh? The best part of the movie is when 'Zig Zag" tells his 'big' that he peed on his couch, but it was unlike any pee he did before. Brilliant. Thanks Goyer. Bloody horrible.
