The Land Audience Reviews

Kattiera Nana I think this is a new genre that they're all sort of working their way through it and haven't got all the kinks worked out yet but it's a genre that works for me.
FirstWitch A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.
Ezmae Chang This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.
Juana what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
bryangary65 Believable drama, and quite atmospheric Though thought Michael Kenneth Williams who is such a great character actor was totally under used in his role as one of the teenagers father.
palomita-15068 Watch dope after this film for a good contrast.To be honest the shock at the end (youll know if you've watched it) pulls it all together, to really push across a message thats hard to ignore.This film is about dreams, friendship, greed and most of all reality. Yes it is a bleak film at times, but I feel unfortunately life is often bleak - especially when born into bleak circumstances as many people are. There are a lot of morals to be found in this story, and something which I have to say i love is the absence of romance. This film was about friendship, family and all the other factors involved., and didn't feel the need to pimp itself up with a romantic story line irrelevant to the story.
cauzik Never wanted the movie to end, it was a very good movie, the ending of it wasn't too good because of what happens to Junior but it did add that thrilling feeling when Cisco gets his revenge. The violence is basically a reality of some of the stuff that happens in places like Cleveland, Compton and more. I wish that there was more of a happy ending for example at least one of them succeed in becoming a professional skate boarder.I really loved how they showed the realism with all the gangs around the neighbour hood it was very unexpected but still very good. Also I think all of the actors played the characters perfect.Overall the movie was exceptional and I would love for there to be a number 2
jtindahouse There isn't a lot of fun to be had in 'The Land'. It's a very bleak film with quite a depressing view on life. There's one character intended to be the comic relief, but even he comes across quite miserable in most scenes. It's a film that takes itself very seriously. At times this is its biggest strength, and at other times it's its biggest weakness. 'The Land' doesn't have a single likable character. The bad guys are bad and the good guys are bad (just slightly less so). We're meant to root for the four main kids, but you'd have to have some very bizarre morals to want to do that. This is the film's biggest downfall. It's fine if a film is grim because of its story, but when it's dreary purely because of its characters, that's a flaw. It's a little slow getting going, but things do pick up as it goes along. The acting is actually quite impressive from most of the cast. Linda Emond, with limited screen time, really impressed me. She was the most captivating of all the cast and never made the mistake of overacting. Altogether though, there's not a whole lot to see here. I'd call it watchable, without having enough substance to make it anything more than that.
