Alive (2023). | PG-13

“From what I can see, itu0026#39;s a good effort from a director that doesnu0026#39;t have much under their belt. Definitely, you can see some good story boarding elements as far as being under a budget and his camera work. However, story and the editing somewhat detract. Thereu0026#39;s quite a few odd cuts. However, itu0026#39;s something they can polish up further along in their career hopefully. Also, Iu0026#39;ve seen better special effects even at these budget levels.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall, zombie apocalypse story, the only spin on it is the positioning and view of the protagonist. There definitely is a ever common family thread in it. However, it is so annoying that it doesnu0026#39;t make any character likeable at all. All seem kind of detached, act on illogical premises. The movie could just be called u0026quot;Barneyu0026quot;, because a kid being the instigator of all the problems and death in the movie seems to be what they had in store. Personally, I found it rather insulting making a kid so dimitted. Also, the way it is framed makes me think none of these people have used firearms before.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI can appreciate the abilities to working with budget constraints, and these film makers actually tell a decent story within those constraints. However, several things pulled me out of the story and I can only attribute it to that. Using odd cuts and foley, where a dark lighting and scuibs or flashing lights would suffice. Some of which arenu0026#39;t all that expensive. The climax of the film is filled with many of these jump quick cuts with little more than exposition.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIf you are a lover of low budget movies, then you might able to glean a more enjoyable movie than I can. Overall, I hope all these film makers get more of a chance in the future to polish their craft.”
