An average movie

Posted : 5 years ago on 23 August 2012 07:54

My step-son, Nick, is a huge movie buff, like me, and we have been watching tons of movies together but something has changed during the last few months. Indeed, Nick has turned 15 years old and nowadays he goes to buy his own DVDs with his pocket-money and he usually comes home with the weirdest movies. For example, the last time, he came back with this flick. My first reaction was to dismmiss it but since it was directed by Brad Anderson who made the awesome 'The Machinist', I thought I should give it a try anyway. Eventually, even though I'm a sucker for those post-apocalyptic features, this one was rather weak. I mean, many people would blame Hayden Christensen but I don't think it is really fair. Like the other actors, he did his best and provided a decent performance but the characters were all poorly developed and not really interesting. Furthermore, the special effects for the shadows were pretty cheesy and it would have worked better if they didn't show anything. Finally, the story was just really weak and it didn't add anything to the overused formula. To conclude, even though it was not completely awful, it remains a rather weak and unoriginal post-apocalyptic flick and it is not really worth a look, even if you like the genre.

It was an okay film, with an okay premise, but it fell apart at the very, very end.

I found an interesting movie with an interesting idea, good soundtrack that leaves the film with a tense atmosphere and that is good and the actors were good, I mean, was supposed to succeed if the director and writer were not idiots, but was poorly done, bad script and what the hell was that end? I could not take that final "Knowing", by the way I hate that. Anyway, it wasn't well developed, still haven't found the movie totally bad, as I've seen before in blogs, the film has its charm, its strengths.

Ok, so this movie started off decently, drew me in, made me want to find out what happened in the end....but as it progressed, and just basically dragged on with occasional flashbacks, it just got worse and worse as time passed. Hayden Christensen, who has never really been a very good actor, definitely made me wish he too would disappear, every time it looked like someone else was going to....that might have made the movie more bearable. Most of the time, I felt like I was watching "The Happening" which was 100% terrible, even though the events in both movies are nothing alike, "Vanishing on 7th Street" kept reminding me of "The Happening".

Perhaps because they both were not very good. I got to a point very near the end of the movie where I wondered if I should even bother finishing or just go to sleep and forget about it...against my better judgement, I went back to a completely predictable ending, and my actual words once the credits started rolling were, "oh my god, what a piece of crap".
