“Son of Morning is about a 20 something nobody who is suddenly propelled into the spotlight thanks to a reaction to a prescription drug. If you are looking for any of the deep areas this premise can take you, you are sadly mistaken. I do not wish to write a bad review. Perhaps I just do not have the eyes for this film. Unfortunately, from where I am standing, this movie is reminiscent of a high school project with a much bigger budget. Every time the movie attempted to be artsy, the point was far too obvious, and had no real depth. This movie could have been much better.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd just a comment on the last review, I think the director was much too u0026#39;90 with much of his film work. Many parts (i.e camera work, extra/ main character acting style, certain dialogue and continuous indulgence in itu0026#39;s own messages) were very sudo-avante garde. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThatu0026#39;s all Iu0026#39;ll say, for I do not wish to slander someoneu0026#39;s work. However, I think all would agree, could have been much better. Too good a premise, and too many good actors for such a poor work….. (btw Danny Glover, always a gem. Best part of the film)”
