All of the comments posted here are bang on the mark. I too went to see Spooked with high hopes and came away incredibly disappointed. I can't believe this screenplay received a greenlight, it reads like a rough draft. What is even worse is that Murphy was all over the media before the film's release lamenting on how difficult it is to obtain funding in this country. The staggering thing is that you can tell a reasonable amount of money has been spent on the film but that none of it makes any different, the film is still broken. A few things in particular irked me: the repeated and annoying cut aways to the jazz musician (a friend of Murphy's) and the reflection of the boom waving up and down in the TV screen in the shots taken at Silverscreen's Auckland headquarters. It was only in the action shots, during the scuffle on the staircase and the dramatic car crash that this movie flowed. That's testament to Murphy's grasp of action movie making, but the rest of Spooked is turgid. Quite possibly the worst NZ movie made in the last ten years.
