It's late. I've had a few beers and I'm watching Bottom Feeder. I'm enjoying the evening but I confess this may not be my finest effort.
If you click on this picture you can see the trailer -
I'm just not sure you can get back to the blog. Oh well.
Okay - whenever evil isn't motivated it's boring and unbelievable. I've spoken before about the banality of evil and these guys are just a little too spot on - the thugish henchman (in this case a woman) is cruel for no other reason than it was written in the script. The bad guy is a badly scarred intelligent Billionaire in a wheelchair. That's new.
This doctor is a pretty good guy by the looks of it - what's the motivation for using him as the first tester? Makes no sense. It's self destructive. He even said - if you don't eat the meta protein right way - bad things would happen. Bad writing.
So Tom is always good but he's looking pretty tired and worn here - not quite what you expect to see in your protagonist but not necessarily a bad thing. Makes him more real. I'm pretty tired and worn so I can put myself in the movie easier.
Sarge - ugh. Just not working with the Rastifarian thing. Holy cliche.
The monster - bad rubber suit.
A few decent gore effects.
I enjoyed the ending - 4 beers didn't hurt I'm sure.
I'll give it 2 Bloody Eyes out of five.
