Final Storm Review

Challenge #3 has been completed, and boy was that a waste of an hour and a half. Final Storm is brought to us by Uwe Boll who has produced numerous movies that make me frown (bad writing, bad concept, just plain bad). My hopes for this movie were already low just because his name was attached to it.

Spoiler Alert!

My fiancé and I laid down and watched it. The opening showed some promise. It had been storming for 3-5 days straight and the world was thrown into chaos. That is about where you can turn off the movie. You follow a country family (mom, dad, and son) and a stranger that they took in. The stranger at first claims it is his house, and it comes out after about an hour and ten minutes that is was his parent's house.

I have no idea what to even say because nothing happens for almost the whole movie. They go to two towns to find them deserted and the last five minutes is the stranger trying to kill the dad and take the family as his own. Other than that 15 minutes of the movie, nothing happens, literally. We were SO bored and the music kept building up to....... nothing. This is probably the worst movie yet in this challenge because of that.
End of Spoiler!

But yea, this is definitely a movie to avoid. I don't even think it fits in a genre just because of that reason. It's kind of a horror but not scary. It's kind of a drama, but you don't care about what's going on. If it wasn't for the music and the feeling that something had to happen, this movie would of been off in 10 minutes. There are so many questions that were left unanswered too. What happened to everyone? Where did they all go? Why are the animals gone? How does Luke Perry know what he does? And the ending leaves even more questions.

Good luck with this movie if you take up the challenge. Now that you know that NOTHING happens though, it will be easier to turn off.

This weekends choices: The Superhero (Action Thriller, a mix of live action and animation; outlook:grim), Narcosys (Action Sci-fi & Fantasy, Netflix says I'm going to give it 1 star, I bet they are right), and finally, As You Like It (Romantic Comedy, a [poor?] adaptation of Shakespeare, almost 2 hours long. /sigh)

  1. I generally go by the stars of a movie as to whether or not it's good. Any movie past 1990 that stars Luke Perry and any movie past 1997 that stars Lauren Holly can't be good. Definitely B-listers.

  2. "It's kind of a horror but not scary. It's kind of a drama, but you don't care about what's going on."

    OH MY GOD! That is poetic.
    Got the point right across.
    I laughed out loud.

  3. I don't know how you can put yourself through this. That sounds like a terrible, unsatisfying movie.

  4. Cool! I'm glad you like my blog!
    Good, I hope they come in useful!

  5. Dayum, I had this on my MUST see list too.

    I pray, pray, pray that one day Judge Dread shows up on the voting list. Because I don't think I've ever been more "WTF? How bad can this get" over a movie before.

  6. Narcosys sounds like the absolute worst, so it gets my vote for this week.


Thanks for stopping by. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on my, well, thoughts.
