30 Days of Night
« on: November 04, 2007, 01:12:12 am »
I saw this last night with a few friends.

Basically, a little town in Alaska is cut off from the world for 30 days of each year and is in darkness for the whole time. Of course this time, something bad happens.

It was a predictable film (I saw a machine in the first 5 minutes of film and stated that a  bad guy would be pushed into it) but it was done really well, with innovative action shots and masterly build up of tensions.

Whilst me and my somewhat astute spotted a few plot holes, it was a very sound film. Violent and a touch racy, and artfully doing an ugly thing. Scary? Perhaps, but more of a jumpy film.

Go see it.

Just saw this today. Best a rental rather than wasting your time in the theater. If you are one to pay close attention to plot points and details, you'll be unhappy. Might become a target for continuity issues as well. Plot i a neat premis to it, but the whole thing felt disjointed and more or less predictable. If there is a directors cut/full-length DVD I might watch it again, it had the feel of being chopped for time.

I agree.

There was that kid who just happened to survive until the end, without being at all trapped, hunted ot used as bait, simply to further the plot..
