Open Water

An amazing story - ruined!

(Edit) 26/04/2005

I saw this film when it was first released. It had been showered with excellent reviews and awards and so I sat down in eager anticipation to view it. As the first minutes of the film past I wondered if I'd been sent the wrong DVD and had instead received a cheesier than usual porn flick. I had the right film but that initial impression never subsided and the horribly wooden acting and convoluted film-making transformed what was touted as an impressive docudrama into a cringe-making disaster which I couldn't wait to end. If the sharks hadn't got them they should have been shot for their abuse of the acting craft!

Collateral

What was all the fuss about???

(Edit) 26/04/2005

I was really looking forward to seeing this film, although Tom Cruise is generally not an actor I enjoy watching, the reviews and Jamie Foxx's recent Oscar made me curious. I really wish I hadn't bothered. Cruise cruised through the film acting one emotion; emotionless (which you'll recognise from Minority Report), and Foxx, though much more interesting to watch, was unable to do enough to lift the film beyond the realms of a slightly higher-than-usual budget cheesy action movie. I admit, I'm not a fan of the tough-guy action film, but having watched this I'm amazed at the fuss it has generated.
