I'm not as militantly against "found footage" films as others, but this is one movie that is absolutely ruined by that choice of direction. The concept, actors and visual effects were all great, and the script is perfectly serviceable. But the rediculously boring direction and heavy-handed fake film grain and interferance added during editing completely ruin the film, and keep you from ever getting drawn into the narritive.
how did they find the footage? They crachsted in space and it is now flooting somewhere. you can not find that footage!!!!!
The difficulty with this film - and with several other pieces of the found footage genre - is the complete implausibility of the footage being released. Considering the Kennedy files weren't originally scheduled for release until 2038 (now 2017,) why would this have been released, especially when it points towards
a government cover-up?
I wanted to like this film, but it was fairly dull, with nothing of note actually happening until nearly 30 minutes through the film.
I actually preferred Moontrap (1989.) After all, that had Bruce Campbell in it.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
