Storyline

Christian Blake is the story of a solitary young man growing up with his closest friend Steve. Unable to handle Steve's flowering relationship with Lucy, Christian becomes obsessed, with tragic consequences. Years later, in a barely functioning mental asylum run by the sadistic Dr Rush and his tormented accomplice Floyd, the journalist Sandra White is allowed a meeting with Christian under the guise of attempting to understand the actions of his past. Her motives are otherwise however and her efforts at personal retribution simply result in awakening the anger dormant inside of him. The results are violent and catastrophic for all involved.

I watched this movie because it sounded promising and needed 5 votes. I hope it never gets the 5 votes because I hope no one else wastes their time on it. I was ready to stop watching it within the first 10 minutes, but I stuck through to the end, which was very predictable, so I could write an honest review. There is nothing about this moving that makes it worth watching. The acting is poor, the story is poor, the scene lighting is poor, and the believability of Christians actions as a whole is poor. I did not see the need for him to be sexually harassed by the very people that were supposed to help him because he had a fondness for his best friend. Probably the only friend he ever had. Love for someone of the same gender does not make you homosexual, nor should it invite homosexual advances from seemingly heterosexual people. Scene to scene it is not cohesive. The way they chose to light the "murder" scenes did not add to the action that was supposed to be going on. In the end, the reasoning for the most active part of the movie falls apart because Christian doing what he did would not have made sense if he was doing it to right something he would have been responsible for. The end was absolutely laughable and as I said predictable. There were so many things, such as initial setting that should have better explained at the beginning. I truly hope this review does not peak anyones curiosity enough to make them watch this movie because it truly was one of the lousiest movies I have ever had the displeasure to sit through.
