Synopsis:
A heist followed by betrayal, a serial killer on the loose, a lunatic out of the asylum, a girl stepping out with a very bad man and a salesman with a vivid imagination: five people whose lives are interconnected without them knowing it but all sharing one thing in common: curiosity kills... 'Welcome to Curiosity' follows the exploits of Lee Hunting, a psychopathic mental patient now on the run.
Intertwined with Lee's tortuous journey towards salvation are Dexter (Cristian Solimeno), Al (Eke Chukwu), Fordy (Richard Blackwood) and Duffy (Lara Heller], who follow a successful heist with a less successful double-cross by Fordy and Duffy; the young and impressionable Zoe (Amrita Acharia), under the wing of the dangerous and violent Sean (Jack Ashton); the straight-laced workaholic Tim (Gary Grant), being led astray by the slightly crazy and domineering Lewis (Terry Sweeney); and the serial killer Stubbs (Brian Croucher) on the loose in suburbia, with only teenage paperboy Elliott (Finn Corney] standing in his way.

Disappointing, confusing British Welsh thriller - Welcome to Curiosity review by PV

Spoiler Alert
11/10/2018

I really wanted to like this film because it's a local British/Welsh production and I always support independent films and those who dare to have a go. However there are real issues with this:

1) the plot features way too many characters and is confusing. This leads to a sort of two-dimensional character thriller which has various violent events but they have little impact because we never really care about any characters, except maybe the teenage boy.

2) the acting is sometimes very wooden indeed.

3) the ending which is supposed to be a 'Usual Suspects' type reveal made no sense to me - it's meant to be profound but is just confusing.

4) there is no humour. None. Other than 'laughing at' some dreadful acting.

So, how to solve these issues? Rewrite and rewrite and rewrite the script, get rid of superfluous characters and streamline everything. FAR more attention at the pre-production stage was needed. This really needs a script doctor!

I believe this is a state-funded production with British Council money, no doubt because it's very ethnically diverse. However, it just does not work as a movie. Which is a shame, because this does look fairly glossy and professional, and there is a kicking soundtrack at the start too.

1.5 stars rounded up.
