Based on the popular first person shooter game, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. But, having seen the previews and the fact they stuck in there scenes that put you in the same first person mode you get in the game, I had to check it out.
I was very glad I did! The movie was actually pretty good! Had likeable characters, good fx, wasn’t a scare fest, and best of all, had a plausible plot! Whoohoo!
The camera also did some incredible work on facial closeups. Plus the 5 minutes or so the movie goes into first person shooter mode was done at the perfect spot for it. Even better, it was funny! Hilarious scenes at a couple of spots as the shooter guns down the baddies.
A very nice homeage film! ***1/2!!
