- Attack from Beneath (2013): I watch a lot of movies and have a pretty high tolerance for shlock. I also have an affinity for production company The Asylum and their shameless rip-offs of popular films. I know the movies are crap but there is such a brazen attitude in their filmmaking that I can’t not applaud at times. I may have to draw the line at Attack from Beneath (a.k.a. From the Sea; a.k.a. Atlantic Rim—that one got them in some trouble!) though. All the tenants of The Asylum are present: bad SFX, cheap sets, stock footage, bizarre performances and silly writing/plotting. Yet, I found myself so bored by this one. It had some of the right elements but they were assembled so poorly that I couldn’t keep any interest. Practically a manifesto to the necessity for strong editing, the film shuffles along from scene to scene without the wherewithal to connect the scenes in any entertaining or affecting way. For instance, the movie begins with some action, then stalls for an extended period only to jump back into some inane action and so on it goes. There is no emotional involvement (a love triangle subplot just eats time—when will filmmakers learn to stop using this lame device?) so you can’t enjoy any of the performances. The SFX are not great but they are at least consistent with the film’s look. The problem with the action scenes is that they are not shot nor edited in any way that resembles competent filmmaking. Sure, we get robots and monsters (well, one monster, 3 times) but it never resonates or thrills. Performances are fine but the actors are not given anything to work with so the efforts of #grahamgreene @treachtribe @therealdavidchokachi and @jackie_moore are wasted here. There is some fun to be had in the cheese department and I did enjoy some of the ridiculous dialogue and bizarre emotional responses in certain scenes. This, unfortunately, doesn’t save the movie in any way but it deserved to be noted. Attack from Beneath is a lame Pacific Rim rip-off that doesn’t work on any level so steer clear of this monster. #movie_mattinee @samenightmovie @oscarwatchpod
