Stitch (2014)★★★☆☆


I didn’t know what to expect from this movie. It started out slow, got a little strange, and then got really weird and religious.

It wasn’t the worst movie, I suppose, but it wasn’t great. (There might be some spoilers ahead) In some ways, it reminded me of Static. Okay, in a lot of ways. The stories are quite similar. This one misses some of the marks that one hit, though.

It’s not the cast. Edward Furlong was fine. I kept staring at Shawna Waldron (Sera) and couldn’t place her until I realized she plays the daughter in The American President. And then that was all I could picture the rest of the film.

There are a lot of twists and turns in this movie but they aren’t enough to cover the slow pacing. There was a weird focus on the relationship Mars (Furlong’s character) and Colline (played by Shirly Brener) apparently had back in high school. There’s one conversation where I swear they say “high school” six times in a minute.

But there are some interesting moments. And don’t apocalypse films just seem to be a good fit right now?
