Heartless

Michael the Moviegoer – @@

Seriously, let’s stop throwing that word “acclaimed” around for directors who haven’t yet done anything really significant. To say that this film is by an acclaimed director is an insult to acclaimed directors. This looks like someone threw “Trainspotting,” “Dawn Of The Dead” and “The Sixth Sense” into a blender and this smoothie of a trailer is the result. Totally uninteresting and unremarkable.

Terrance the Trailer Trasher – @@@

There are shots in this trailer that tempted me at first to lump this into the overcrowded zombie genre, but those other smoothie ingredients tell me there’s something more here. That disappearing birthmark reminds me of a small subplot in “The End of the Affair,” in which almost the exact same birthmark on a small boy is healed by Julianne Moore’s touch after she makes a bargain with God. This story is the dark inverse of that. I also taste a little “Vanilla Sky” in that smoothie. And that metamorphosis through burning flesh looks totally sick! This smoothie might be worth a taste.

Michael’s Rebuttal:

This smoothie has way too much high fructose corn syrup for me.

“Heartless” tries to scare up audiences starting tomorrow.

Let us know what you think. And be sure to come back next week when we review trailers for four more upcoming releases!
