Broken Ties

by Hauraki Pictures Ltd


Never taking itself too seriously, with slow moving cars and a weakness for water being our hero's biggest issue, Broken Ties used their genre as a catalyst for exploring how far friendship can be tested.

Whilst there was a perilous kidnapping involved in the plot, the fact that the film came to a conclusion of standing around and arguing next to a swimming pool about sisterly love meant that the money shot splash played like a lighthearted comic moment rather than having any real weighting. I get that you were going for what was supposed to a dramatic SAW-like 'Live or die, make your choice', but I felt that there could have been more tension, more consequence.

Audio was clear and the film had a nice colourful feeling to it with strong outfits giving visual character to the actors, and the invisibility moments were nicely edited, but just personally found the proceedings quite light.

Story: 1.5/5
Technical: 2.5/5
Elements: 2/5
Overall: 2/5
