“Loved the idea for u0026#39;The Soundu0026#39;, which for recent modest to low budget film viewings was one that was really quite creative. Executed right, u0026#39;The Soundu0026#39; had potential to be quite decent. The cover/poster/advertising was attention grabbing and does make one want to see the film. Christopher Lloyd too is always watchable, despite being in a lot of bad projects in recent years.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt is unfortunate that u0026#39;The Soundu0026#39; was yet another great potential waste, which is both frustrating and annoying. It doesnu0026#39;t come anywhere near close to being as attention grabbing as the cover/poster/advertising, makes a creative concept dull and ordinary and Lloyd is much better than this. Really wanted to like u0026#39;The Soundu0026#39;, but couldnu0026#39;t do it with such underwhelming execution of almost every component. Not all of them, but all but a few.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eRose McGowan is competent and Lloyd gives his limited character and screen time a lot of gusto. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFirst third of u0026#39;The Soundu0026#39; is intriguing and creepy and some of the photography is atmospheric and slick enough.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe rest of the acting is not worth mentioning, Michael Eklund in particular spends the whole time looking like he was recovering from a hangover. The characters are sketchy at best and there is just nothing interesting or investable about them. Photography aside, u0026#39;The Soundu0026#39; looks drab and like it was made in haste.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDialogue is very stilted and muddled, the direction is pedestrian and after a promising start, the intrigue and suspense goes and the story for the rest of the film is a mess of incoherence, with too many things being vague, silliness and dreary pacing, complete with a rushed and petered out ending.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn summary, pretty weak. 3/10 Bethany Cox”
