The Ten (2007)
"If He'd meant the commandments literally, He'd have written them in stone."Ten stories, each inspired by one of the ten commandments.
Watchable but would not recommend
This is the first film I have chosen to comment on so forgive me if my
review is not on par with some of the more knowledgeable film buffs out
there! I feel I should also point out that I have no prior knowledge of
the director or any of his previous works.
Therefore, reviewing this as a stand-alone movie, I would have to say
that it was somewhat below average. While there were some scenes that I
did laugh at and in my opinion the acting was great (though it has to
be said that the actors were playing rather shallow characters) all in
all it was a rather disappointing film. As many people have said, the
plots were VERY loosely tied to the Ten Commandments (in some cases I
found it hard to find the link at all) and I actually felt embarrassed
for the actors during some of the more cringe worthy scenes. It just
felt to me as if they were trying too hard. In some cases the dialogue
was highly commendable but in others it was just lacked subtlety. Don't
get me wrong - I love humour that is intended to shock and appal but as
I said earlier - this film just felt like it was trying too hard to do
so and thus, for me, lacked integrity.
