(mx) wrote: A low budget retelling of the 1968 classic but relocated to South Wales. There is quite a lot of bad acting on show here and this probably accounts for the picture's inability to build any fear or dread. Some inventiveness is displayed through the camerawork and soundtrack.

All got very 'mixed up' for me as I tried to fathom out what was really going on. Two central figures were Antoine (Kevin Parent) and Jacqueline (Vanessa Paradis), a successful DJ and a single, struggling mother respectively. I found myself looking for a link between the two parallels, which either didn't emerge or didn't exist, and started to lose interest mid way as the mixed up story line became more and more murky. The acting was good, especially by the younger cast, and some of the music was good, but not one for me.

(kr) wrote: Interesting concepts here, but really not very impressive to watch, unless you're dying to see disclosed areas up close. The conversations almost seem to reach philisophical heights. Who better than a gay man to confront his worst fears? On another note, it's simply not plausible that all men, or all gay men, for that matter, may be so violent towards a woman.

(us) wrote: La secuela de "The Omen", que cuenta acerca de la inminente llegada del Anticristo, bajo la identidad del nio Damien Thorn, es menos efectiva que su predecesora (en gran parte gracias a la ausencia del director Richard Donner), pero incluye varios sustos genuinos, unas secuencias de muerte impresionantes, una buena actuacin a cargo de William Holden y un Damien perturbador a cargo de Jonathan Scott-Taylor.

(au) wrote: The Bag Man (aka The Carrier) certainly has its flaws - some plotting issues aside, the ending is truly woeful - but if you like dirty, violent thrillers you could do a lot worse. A complete waste of some of the talent involved this may be, but it's entertaining in its own often bizarre way.
(br) wrote: The story is very unclear; the voice overs and dialogues are always so imprecise and methaphorical that you don't really know what's happening
