Ahhhh IMDb reviewers what is wrong with you people. I sat down to this after reading the reviews (5.5 average) and thought maybe its just another romcom flam which will fill in the evening, it will be nothing much.
But what I got was an original storyline and an engaging non cloned romcom I never seen before which zinged with ideas and concepts which I am still thinking about 2 days later, that is very rare with films these days.
As the film went the main protagonists have a great on screen chemistry, the story is an in-depth look at shallow marketing and it does that brilliantly. I really don’t have to say more.
People have a look at this film and don’t trust the reviewers who have read the book. I am sure the book is better, but as a standalone film this is very enjoyable. I have just bought another of the authors books as I am eager for more of his views of this time we live in.
Seriously unconvincing lead.
I haven’t read the book, but reading the comments it would appear as though its fairly different so I don’t think this matters much as far as a review of the film is concerned.
The main thing that distracted me through the whole movie was the casting of Shiloh Fernandez as Scat, other than maybe having the look of a sleazy marketer, he seemed massively out of place as a male lead. I didn’t think there was any chemistry between him and Amber Heard at all, any attraction between the two seemed totally implausible. He’d probably be fine in a supporting role, but not as a lead. I was wondering the whole time if his father financed the movie or something to get him the role.
Other than that the movie was OK, it did seem to be trying to hard to be cool and edgy and didn’t really pull it off. Sure it had a tiny budget, but if anything doing things on a shoe string should make a movie more cool and edgy, but it wasn’t at all. Everything that was meant to be cool seemed forced and cliché.
On the positive side, I thought Amber Heard was great as 6, as was her character. I can see why the ending left a few unhappy, but I think it was better to do what they did than just some by the numbers rom-com ending.
