Man was I excited to see this film. Found Footage isn't exactly my cup of tea but this sounded pretty original and I had heard some good things about it. Boy was I mislead, this was a huge disappointment and left me pretty bummed that I had sat through it all.
So it starts out pretty interesting. We are introduced to a couple, a woman, and a guy who lives with his mother. They are all given camera's that they are convinced that they won in contests however quickly find out something more sinister is going on. Sounds fun right? Wrong, the problem is that the movie hardly goes anywhere. I could easily sit here and tell you every single thing that happens in the movie in less that 3 minutes, obviously I won't to retain from spoiling but you get my point.
The movie was just so dull. The Woman's story basically just consists of her sitting in here house while she receives creepy voice mails. The couple's story play out the same way. The Mommas boy's story is by far the most interesting even though it really isn't all that great, but at least he leaves his house and is required to do some tasks. The ending was incredibly predictable and could be seen coming a mile away. On a positive though the acting was pretty solid throughout.
Overall this was just hardly worth my time. It keeps you watching to see the finale, but what it leads up to really is not very good at all. There was a tiny bit of suspense but it is stomped out by the time the credits roll. Very disappointing movie and not really worth it.
