Plan Overboard

by Hauraki 48


Really gung-ho splatfest of a couple of pirates climbing aboard and murderously taking over a boat complete with some low budget but nicely done OTT blood vfx and convincing sound effects of bones breaking.

When the film got going, energy was the key word that would describe the events that occured as the team tried their best to pay homage to BAD TASTE. However it did unfortunately take quite some time to get going, with shots held probably a bit too long to kick off proceedings as the pirates planned their takeover, and then the boarding of the ship itself also having some very extended coverage.

Your general camerawork was nice, with excellent use of natural lighting on board the ship, though I would just advise for night time footage to work on lighting as the opening shots did come across as compressed and grainy. Points for cool uniforms though and hey, my review notebook has "FUN" jotted down. Good work, just a bit more to the story would have elevated things.

Story: 1.5/5
Technical: 3/5
Elements: 3/5
Overall: 2.5/5
