|12.17.19||Netflix|| Once upon a time, people could pass an argument that this wave of music video directors criticized for valuing style over substance did have something to contribute to the cinematic landscape. Much was said about Criterion including movies like The Rock and Armageddon in their collection. Perhaps this new school would grow to incorporate story and emotion with their bombastic visual flair to create something greater than the sum of its parts?|
Nope. Twenty years later we have this pile of shit. oh well!
I guess you could say that parts of the first car chase scene have some cool moments of CG and gore with physics-y human models thrown around like a cool video game cut-scene, but the rest of the movie is trash. Since I'm not watching so so many movies these days I typically find myself seeing the good in everything I watch but this one was pretty hard. I thought maybe the cast and the fact that it didn't have giant robots might make this interesting but it really wasn't. Just a lot of flaming garbage shot from thirty different angles.
