Beowulf movie grendel fight By introducing that short

Beowulf movie grendel fight By introducing that short infection range, Boyle and company pretty much throw out a major suspense element that they had in hand. While the sudden transformation adds another sense of urgency to the proceedings, it eliminates the suspenseful question of who might become the next zombie as well as when that will occur. Without having the survivors going into proactive mode of trying to figure out their attackers modus operandi and/or a way to defeat them, the filmmakers also reduce their ability to get the viewer engaged as fully as possible in the characters quest for survival. What were left with is a run of the mill, run from the zombie flick that weve seen countless times before from the likes of Night of the Living Dead up beowulf movie grendel fight Resident Evil. It doesnt help matters that Boyle and cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle Julien Donkey-Boy, Its All About Love have shot the film on an apparently low-end digital camera or messed around with a good one to make the results look bad. I suppose that was to give the effort an additional raw feel, but it only ends up making the picture look cheap. To make matters worse, their method of inducing thrills and chills when the zombies attack is by apparently increasing the shutter speed, zipping the camera to and fro and using lots of quick edits. While that does keep the viewer from seeing whats occurring in full, I found very little of it to be spooky, let alone outright scary those with low tolerance levels for such zombie material may react otherwise. The final and perhaps greatest collection of flaws is that we dont care about any of the characters or the order in which theyll presumably be killed and the zombies simply arent that interesting or imaginative of a menacing presence. Murphy, along with the likes of Naomie Harris The Sobering, Living in Hope, Brendan Gleeson Gangs of New York, The General, Megan Burns Liam or Christopher Eccleston The Others, Jude simply dont have enough substantial material with which to work to make us worry about their safety. Although some may read all sorts of sociopolitical context within the main flick particularly when considering the early research scenes, later military ones and the recent outbreak of SARS, I think thats giving the beowulf movie grendel fight a bit too much credit. Despite an intriguing beginning and a handful of decently staged scenes here and there, the film ultimately goes nowhere as it simply retreads familiar material without doing anything imaginative, remarkable or memorable with it. 28 Days Later rates as just a 4 out of Reviewed June 13, 2003Posted June 27, 2003 By entering this site you acknowledge to having read and agreed to the above conditions.
