Almost boring for good
26 March 2012 | by jos_santenSee all my reviews

This movie has a too slow pace in its entirety, as there isn't question of a gradual increase of suspense that is so decisive for many movies. The main characters can be mentioned flat characters and are often too shallow and predictable in their behavior. I am sure that there already have been made quite similar movies about defiance, deception and envy between Hollywood actors. The only character who has taken me by surprise is Michael, who shows eminent modesty and comity to his chief, but gradually evolves a more critical approach to the other actors so that he becomes the leader of the crew. Actually, my incentive to watch this movie is that Greg Scott (who plays Michael) has also played a role in the awesome movie Ghosthouse. Therefore I am very sorry to say that the quality of Almost Hollywood is miles away from Ghosthouse. In spite of all my criticism, the movie has some funny, more or less original scenes about the rehearsals and conflicting appraisals and biases of the making of any movie. So if you like an easy movie that shows conflicts in the Hollywood scene in a nutshell, I would do recommend you watching it (without having too great expectations).
