BOY WONDER – A FILM

In crime on December 19, 2011 at 7:23 pm

Patience. This film demands it. 

Thirty minutes in and I still don’t know what is really going on or where it’s going.

Thirty-one minutes in, we are told we’re in NYC. I feel like I’ve been given a huge clue. However, I still don’t know much and I’m being fed snippets of flashbacks and current events.

Is the kid a vigilante?

So far, we know he witnessed his mom’s murder and grew up in a violent environment, his father was an alcoholic, but I’m still wondering, where is this film going? And this is the main problem. It fails to keep me hooked because I don’t know where I’m being taken.

Fifty minutes in, we’re told where the MC is heading at last. And now I’d like to know more.

The father figure is a bit sketchy throughout until we get to the father finding steroids in Sean’s bedroom and then there’s the kid’s birthday and we get to see more of the father,  but by now it’s too much into the film and I want to know I’m approaching a resolution. However, I don’t feel it coming.

Seventy minutes in, we’re taken to a party Sean talked about at the very beginning of the film.

A thought pops  in my head, is there an editing problem here?

Seventy-eight minutes in the film, Sean is on a drug trip  and I wish the film would just get on now. It’s getting weird and has lost my attention.

The ending.  I’m glad to have stuck with it. The last few minutes sure deserve it.

Make room for this flick, you too might enjoy it as much as I did.

Written and Directed by Michael Morrissey with James Russo, Zulay Henao and Tracy Middendorf.       http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1456060/
