GODSEND 'GOD AWFUL!'?
'Imagine you've just lost your only son in a car crash. Now imagine that an old college professor shows up at the funeral offering you an opportunity to get that son back.' Thats the synopsis for Lions Gates new flick, Godsend, which stars Greg Kinnear, Rebecca Romjin-Stamos, Robert DeNiro. Here's the first ever review online for the flick compared to The Good Son and said to be 'god aweful'....
Aint it Cool News posted the first ever review for Lions Gates Godsend, which stars Greg Kinnear, Rebecca Romjin-Stamos, Robert DeNiro, here's a taste....
'Once Adam starts acting like Macauley Culkin in The Good Son, you know you've got a problem....'
'....The performances are good (even if DeNiro is a bit miscast as a mad scientist), some of the camera work is nice, but the execution of the story just doesn't work. In trying to a) play it safe with the ratings board and b) not give too much away, the filmmakers have created a muddled mess out of the midsection of the movie. It's unfortunate too, because so much in the first act works. But act two is alternately confusing, repetive, and dull.'
'The ending is so abrupt and 'safe', I would be shocked if this picture gets released without a reshoot........'
