I have to be honest, I couldn't manage sitting through the full duration of this abomination. I left the theater after aprox. 35min and felt like it was the best choice I have made in years.
And hearing that this was the last transformers movie that Bay will completely ruin, was like a god send. I still hold hope that someone will be able to salvage the wreck that is left after Michael Bay butchered everything that made this my favorite TV show as a kid.
No! Unless you're looking for a movie where you can predict where every twist is gonna happen 10min in advance this is not the movie for you. The same goes if you are looking for chills, this is about as scary as watching an episode of barney the purple dinosaur.
My review of Let's be Evil
Where do I start, the work and talent that went into producing this movie is just amazing.
The movie cast features professional actors (possibly mentored by Count Olaf himself) whom together packs a combined acting career of no more than a weeks worth at best.
Screenwriters who's flair and creativity composed this masterpiece; a script that makes Curious George seem like a children's book.
But wait, there's more:
Let's be evil, packs some awe inspiring post-effects created by a VFX artist who upgraded from using crayons a few days before getting to work on butchering what was left of this movie after the *cough cough* actors and screenwriters were done with it.
Now for a condensed review of the story line:
3 broke, imbecile young adults Jenny, Darby, Tiggs (played by previously mentioned no-name actors who will all be re-appearing in the sequel "Let's be eviler: Turkey season" ) are selected to participate in a secret project. They are tasked with babysitting a dozen or so primary school students.....in a top of the line AR enhanced underground facility.
To show how high-tech this place is, the facility is managed by an Artificial intelligence with an IQ rivaling that of an infant.
You won't see this coming so be warned spoiler ahead; the kids turn evil!!!!
The kids start to harass and attack Jenny, Darby and Tiggs.
Being adults and 3 times the size of their primary school attackers, they do the only sensible thing....flee in panic.
The primary school students make quick work of the AI disabling it in minutes,
and undetermined by the fact that they unable to reach higher than Darby's waist, overpower and immobilize him using not one but TWO!!!! strips of duct tape...good lord!
Jenny and Tiggs eventually manage to save Darby free Darby, however morale in the group is plummeting quickly as they realize the gravity of their situation. Trapped in an underground facility faced with a formidable adversary consisting of a bunch of school children they must escape or die trying!
As the movie progresses at what feels like a glacial pace the end is finally within reach with what can only be descried as an epic culmination....a cliffhanger-ish!
I've seen people make better movies in MS paint.
