Among Them (2018) is a huge WTF?
Huge WTF film is something you are either going to accept or one that is going to leave you scratching your head. I'm in the head scratching mode since after about a half an hour I felt totally lost. There are flashbacks, we are left out of some events,strange things happen and a couple of times things happen that make you wonder what planet these people are on (for example there is an early scene with the characters talking where no one sees the hotel clerk is looking in through the window. Really? You're looking straight at him).
This is weird for weird's sake to such an extent that by the denouncement came I really didn't care. That is a shame because if you remove the script this is a solid little film, It looks good, the cast is top notch and basic idea has possibilities. I just wish the filmmakers hadn't thought this was the best way to go with the material.
While not bad, this really isn't all that hot. This is probably best for anyone who likes head trippy films that make you wonder but provide no answers.
Out now on VOD platforms
