Started out pretty good.
Then it ended, resolved nothing and seemed more like a television series (this being the first episode) than a movie.
If this wasn't time wasted I don't know what is.
Nowhere does it indicate there will be a part 2 or a "to be continued".
How can anyone be satisfied with this as a film?
Worth The Long Wait
After having watched this movie, here is my review of it.
What I liked:
I enjoy fiction (or movies) that have humor interspersed with the drama. You can't have a dark show without having some humor because it gives respite to the viewer (or reader). One of the funniest scenes/lines in this movie comes from an older couple who seem to have been together since the year dot. The old woman says in response to her husband questioning why she went to church: "I was praying for your soul...and the good lord to take it!" What happens after this is a mega spoiler, so I'm going to jump over talking about this couple.
I THOROUGHLY enjoyed the nerdy Shawn played by Miles Muir. I'll be honest and say I wasn't expecting this performance. Miles made you care about his character. He was a nerdy kid who appeared to be a loner (not by choice). His life's ambition was about to become a reality and Miles made me want Shawn to succeed because it was central to why he was motivated to do what he did. There were so many layers to this young man. As far as acting is concerned, if the actor can make me fall in love or hate with his or her character, they have done their job. The whole purpose of telling a story is that it must resonate with you the viewer; there has to be something in the movie you see that touches you.
Watch The Sky does that, and I think the reason for this is Miles. His portrayal of Shawn was just spectacular at such a young age. Surprised at his acting ability and the ease in which he sold me on Shawn's journey. I can't wait to see what he does in the future because if he chooses to continue in the acting biz, this young man is going to impress.
What I didn't Like:
It starts off very slow; it laid the foundation of the story, but it took a long time to get there. This isn't a movie that finishes telling its story by the end. Had I known that, I would have savored the build up. It may lose some viewers before it gets to the heart of the story because of the pace.
Should you watch this movie? ABSOLUTELY. I am going to predict that Miles Muir is going to have a lot of new fans because he is a talented young actor that, if given the right material, he will be someone to watch.
It has great characters that make you want to know more about them. For me, it all boils down to that. I want great characters in a movie or a book or theatre because that's what makes the show. You can slice and dice it with explosions and car chases, but at the end of the day, it's the characters that matter. On that score, it succeeded.
The pacing of the story needed to be quicker because I noticed it only started to rev up to about halfway through the movie. It has it's pacing flaws, but overall if you stick with it, you will find that there is a lot to like about Watch The Sky.
