Abandon all hope....
27 October 2006 | by thomkennedy1983See all my reviews

I had the misfortune to sit through this film a couple of years ago as an acquaintance of mine had been given a preview copy to review for a student paper. Briefly, this film is trite and full of awful 'seize the moment, life's for the living' type sound bite dialogue. The plot jerks around in an completely unconvincing manner and the only real message I got from the whole sorry affair was that one can find all the resolve and fortitude necessary in life by going bungee jumping. The actors cast for the students generally look too old, the 'risque' apparently amusing incidents presumably based on writer Guy de Beaujeu's own experiences are tame and quite uninspiring and the performances are uniformly reminiscent of a bad school play.

On the plus side, there is some nice direction and some attractive locations are utilised. The camera-work is also quite good and the film really could have evoked the sense of optimism and hope which it was clearly aiming for, were it not for the leaden script and dire acting.
