Crawl (2011)

Director: Paul China

Stars: George Shevtsov, Bob Newman, Georgina Haig

A seedy bar-owner hires a mysterious Croatian to murder an acquaintance over an unpaid debt. The crime is carried out, but a planned double-crossing backfires and an innocent waitress suddenly becomes involved. Now a hostage in her own home, the young woman is driven to desperate measures for survival. A suspenseful, yet darkly humorous chain of events builds to a blood-curdling and unforgettable climax.

This was one boring movie. It just drags and drags along seeming like it is going nowhere. The pace of the movie was just to slow with trying to create these very artful dramatic scenes. It just did not work. This was not an arty movie, but there are so many scenes where no one is speaking, it is just the camera shots going back and forth between characters. There are too many of that. I know and get what they are trying to do, but it made for a bad movie. It is trying to be a more violent homage to the movie No Country For Old Men. It is way too obvious that was what they were trying to do.

The killing and the violence in the movie was good, but it just was not really enough to save the movie for me. I understood the concept of the movie, but it just failed to me. This is not a movie that I would want to watch again. I watched it, so you don't have to.
