Storyline

From the writer himself: "This is about a certain year. How things could go from bad to worse within a year. We focus mostly on a guy's life (Mark Fisher), and how his life affected others within that period of time. Just how bad does a person have to be before the Lord intervenes and puts a stop to it? Problems have to be given immediate attention to avoid future escalations. Mark Fisher uses his devilish tactics to turn his mom (Laura Fisher) against his dad (Kenneth Fisher) by subduing him with his weaknesses. Knowledgeable people live their lives knowing 365 days is only around the corner while foolish people live their lives thinking it is forever. A day spent is a day lost. Once your 365 days are gone, they can never be retrieved."

When I say I'm a cinephile, I mean it. I've watched more movies than I could ever count, all kinds, including legitimate low-budget schlock, so I'm not instantly biased against low-budget films because they can still be well-made and entertaining. However, this...whatever is so mean-spirited, soulless, and poorly made that it makes movies like Death Promise look like a Kurosawa film. Just AWFUL story, awful characters, awful EVERYTHING.

The only plus is that it's very legitimately diverse (as in minorities aren't just hanging out in the background with no lines)--but, I mean, given how the characters are used, it's not really a benefit. The main actor was perfectly cast for his face alone because I've never seen such a punchable actor in my life. The only actor that seemed to be making a consistent effort was the one playing the sister. There were subplots that didn't really go anywhere and a lot of random scenes. This...whatever could have been 30 minutes. Also, there were violent crimes committed that went unpunished/unresolved. And the "redemption" of the main character was poorly paced and laughable. There was no walking back that irredeemable character just because the script says so. The writers gave us zero to empathize with (thinking some "props" like a mother and child would suffice) but wanted us to accept him suddenly being changed. Uh, no.

This offended me not by the content but by the execution. I knew in the first few seconds, seeing the camerawork, that I should have shut it off. I regret going until the end.
