(jp) wrote: Beautifully filmed and wonderfully original, Frequencies is a thought-provoking and heart-warming story about finding love in unlikely places.

(br) wrote: Actually pretty good. This is an unusual romdramedy for the most part, but veers more towards convention as the film proceeds, which is a shame. However, nice dialogue, a strong hold on all the characters and a well-chosen cast keep you going throughout. Never boring.
(au) wrote: such a good movie. So entertaining and funny. But the best pat is there's so much truth to this movie. It opened my eyes about the severe damage we're blindly causing to the earth.
(us) wrote: A fair review. I am a Charlie Hunnam fan, and the idea is great and everything BUT this movie has movie has already been done in 1999 with Brad Pitt, and Edward Norton, and was called 'Fight Club', made in America. So basically this movie is a knock off version of 'Fight Club' that was made in England. But it's still a good idea it was just already done. Except there Soccer thugs or F 1/4tball thugs instead of Soap sells men.

(ag) wrote: Probably more exciting 15 years ago when it came out, it is actually less hyperkinetic that most of Carnahans work. This low budget cop thriller catapulted him to fame, which he then torpedoed with a series of flops and creative differences. Carnahans unquestionably has talent in a Tony Scott vein, but Narc fails to really add up the disparate pieces. Anyone who has seen a twisty cop thriller can guess the ending more or less, and it is revealed in a giant exposition dump that grinds everything to a halt. The acting is big and brash, and the story is muscular and loud, like De Palma without the tension. When a cop is killed his ex partner and a disgraced former undercover cop team up to track down who did it. It alternates between loud busts and interrogation with frankly uninteresting "investigating" consisting of mostly staring at paper and furrowed brows. If you've seen anything by David Ayer, you've seen all there is to see here.
