johnlink ranks SEE NO EVIL (2006)

Fear Net! It’s been too long since we got together and did our thing. Quinn wasn’t sleeping, so I had a baby holding shift for an hour and a half at 3 AM. Perfect for Fear Net. Don’t worry, I kept the baby facing me. No horror movie for this two week old!

I watched SEE NO EVIL (2006) on 9.16.10. It was my first viewing of the film. TRAILER HERE

Kane, from the WWE, as the villain? I’m in. Well, sort of. I was so sure this movie would be a train wreck that I had sort of danced around watching it. And I was right in my assumption that it would be cheesy, silly, and unnecessarily grotesque (there is a laughably bad CGI sequence at the climax).

But I will give SEE NO EVIL this: It came up with an original villain, had a couple of likable characters whom you wanted to live, and came up with a few surprises. This is by no means a good movie, but it at least is watchable, and has its own story.

The dialogue is pretty brutal, as expected. I’m not saying this is a good script either. I was just expecting absolutely nothing unique or remotely resembling a real movie, and this film at least tries. It even has its own shaky cam, out-of-focus camerawork for Kane’s POV. Good? No. At least consistent? Sure.

This is, I know, the most reaching review I’ve written in the sense that I am mildly defending a bad movie. Hell I’ve bashed movies that have gotten an entire point higher for a final score. But when you are expecting explosive painful diarrhea, and instead get a painless bowel movement, there’s at least a sense of relief.
