Frequently low quality
17 August 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Loved the idea for 'The Sound', which for recent modest to low budget film viewings was one that was really quite creative. Executed right, 'The Sound' had potential to be quite decent. The cover/poster/advertising was attention grabbing and does make one want to see the film. Christopher Lloyd too is always watchable, despite being in a lot of bad projects in recent years.

It is unfortunate that 'The Sound' was yet another great potential waste, which is both frustrating and annoying. It doesn't come anywhere near close to being as attention grabbing as the cover/poster/advertising, makes a creative concept dull and ordinary and Lloyd is much better than this. Really wanted to like 'The Sound', but couldn't do it with such underwhelming execution of almost every component. Not all of them, but all but a few.

Rose McGowan is competent and Lloyd gives his limited character and screen time a lot of gusto.

First third of 'The Sound' is intriguing and creepy and some of the photography is atmospheric and slick enough.

The rest of the acting is not worth mentioning, Michael Eklund in particular spends the whole time looking like he was recovering from a hangover. The characters are sketchy at best and there is just nothing interesting or investable about them. Photography aside, 'The Sound' looks drab and like it was made in haste.

Dialogue is very stilted and muddled, the direction is pedestrian and after a promising start, the intrigue and suspense goes and the story for the rest of the film is a mess of incoherence, with too many things being vague, silliness and dreary pacing, complete with a rushed and petered out ending.

In summary, pretty weak. 3/10 Bethany Cox
