(kr) wrote: An irregular and heterogeneous combination of seven different stories that lacks a cohesive unity and is never interesting enough to be worth our time - and not even excellent directors like Pablo Trapero and Gaspar No are able to save this project from being dull and tiring.

If you liked the Puppet Master films, you'll probably have fun with this film, but if you didn't, you'll hate it. What can I say? I love bad films.

(de) wrote: Taps is an immature, poorly made film that relies heavily on killing off its young protagonists in a transparent effort to manipulate its audience. When one thinks of great boarding school movies, Dead Poet's Society, Rushmore, and even School Ties come to mind. Taps pales in comparison to these better-known, and just plain better, counterparts. The plot sees a group of wannabe soldiers fight for the right to keep their beloved school from being turned into an apartment block, and they will go to any length to do so. However when their harebrained plan leads to an ever-increasing body count the time comes to reassess the situation, and an important decision must be made. It's not often that I would side with estate agents but in this case of 'military brats versus realtors', I would pick anyone over the irksome kids depicted here. Their actions are so over-the-top and irritatingly self-righteous that the movie plunges to a level of utter ridiculousness. This is most notable in a supposedly pivotal scene where a teenage troublemaker is shot dead during a fracas with the army boys. It is at this point that it becomes very clear just how poorly written and directed the film is. With the boy killed the reaction of those around him is laughable; nobody screams, shouts or cries, instead they all just stand around as the headmaster of the school has the gun in his hand (even though a second earlier it was quite clearly in the hand of one of the teenagers). It's a confusing mess of a scene, designed to shock and spark emotion in the viewer, but succeeds only in baffling them, and making the closing of the school a whole lot more justified. As the plot continues, the number of child deaths rises. One boy appears to spontaneously combust, burning to death for reasons which still elude me, while another is needlessly shot in accidental gunfire. By this point I found myself so peeved by such blatant attempts to shock the audience to tears through the deaths of children, that I could see nothing beyond the amateur direction and utter stupidity of what was unfolding. The saving grace of the film is undoubtedly its young cast. Who would have thought from their humble beginnings here that both Cruise and Penn would become the huge stars they are today? Penn shows clear promise as the least irritating of the students, delivering an accomplished performance that set him up nicely as a fresh young talent. Meanwhile Cruise is comparatively more annoying but effective nonetheless, as the slightly unhinged David. It isn't exactly a subtle portrayal but it is a predominantly successful one. Credit also to the largely forgotten Timothy Hutton in the lead role, his performance is better than the shoddy script deserves but still cannot rescue the film from its atrociously melodramatic conclusion. As such Taps is simply not worthy of a revisit unless you're curious to see Cruise or Penn so early in their careers. If not, then do yourself a favour and avoid.
