Interesting ideas, poor execution.
The films starts of good: the premise is intriguing and there are some scenes that get you dragged into the movie. As the movie progresses, the script starts making less and less sense and the last twenty minutes felt incredibly rushed and out of tone.
The direction wasn’t good at all. What bothered me for instance was the camera-work. Too many different styles are mixed and it all ends up looking incredibly sloppy instead of the intended ‘modern/flashy’ effect. The music should have been better too. There were numerous examples of scenes that should have been silent that had music playing in the background and vice versa. Also, the music played was not of the highest quality.
The film is somewhat engaging, it deals with a sensitive subject and tries to deal with it in an honest yet confronting matter. At least, in the beginning. In the 2nd part of the movie there’s little left of the objectivity in the script. I won’t name any concrete examples because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone but I’m sure you’ll know what I’m talking about if you ever see it.
The acting was all right in my opinion. Not top notch but not horrible either. Gere is average like always and Danes doesn’t really leave big impression either. The supporting cast should’ve been better, the example of Miss Avril Lavigne immediately comes to mind. She manages to ruin the only scene she has.
Many people will compare this movie to 8mm, because of the similar harsh theme but they have little in common. 8mm is a lot more powerful,darker and shows more guts(not literally). It’s easily the better film. There are some shocking scenes in ‘The Flock’, one of which resembles a scene in 8mm a lot but this time they lacked the nerve to go all the way.
To summarize, is this movie bad? No, but it won’t blow you away. The ideas are interesting but after a while the script feels uninspired and formulaic. The acting is mediocre and the score is bad. It’s not really worth seeing but it’ll briefly entertain you.
One of the worst movies of all time
I watched the movie “The Flock” because of the casting of Gere and Danes and because the story synopsis sounded interesting. This was one of the WORST movies I’ve seen in a long while (and I’ve seen some turkeys.) I’ve never posted online before but this movie was so awful I had to do so. I suppose the problems begin begin with the script which was so amateurish it’s unbelievable. The story makes zero sense and the dialogue is so trite it’s nauseating. Poor Gere, he deserves so much better. As for the Gere/Danes on screen matchup, because of the horrible writing, one doesn’t believe either character for a single minute. I’ll bet Gere wishes he could buy back the negative, were such a thing possible. It’s a shame to see talent wasted so badly, not to mention I wish I could get my 2 hours back. (I know what you’re thinking. How do I really feel?)
