“Writers Retreat is an obscure little British thriller about a group of writers getting away from the world seeking their muses on Osea Island.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAt first I found it intricate, interesting, well constructed and was very curious to see where it was going. I made assumptions, based on the intelligence of the script I saw big things coming in the following 90 minutes!u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlas I really should stop making assumptions, I tend to be wrong and more to the point disappointed. Writers Retreat falls from intelligent into the generic and any hope for originality and some level of savvy thoroughly flatlined.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWriters Retreat isnu0026#39;t bad, itu0026#39;s just not good either. Without any spoilers letu0026#39;s just say that it quickly becomes apparent exactly what sub-genre this falls under and I hadnu0026#39;t expected that (And was sad to see it).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe cast do a decent enough job, the issues are behind the camera which have left this as very mediocre affair.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Good:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eChristopher Fairbanku003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe Bad:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eStock screamu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003ePoor sound editingu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGoes in a disappointing directionu003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThings I Learnt From This Movie:u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIu0026#39;d love to attend a writers retreat, preferably not this one though”
