30 December 2009 | spike-robinson
atmospheric but weak, confused plot
Very few of the actions of any of the characters are credible, and this makes it hard to relate to. Torrence behaves like a personal Nemesis to Jo and Masen. There is no logic to his operation nor why people follow him. The plot proceeds through a series of accidents and stupid or careless mistakes in unlikely situations. Cars in the UK seem scarcer than automatic weapons. No one behaves cautiously, like a survivor. Even triffid experts, scarred by triffid fights, go deliberately into battle against unrestrained triffids without eye protection that was mandatory for them when working with secure captive triffids. Relationships evolve clumsily and implausibly. People in general are more afraid of each other than triffids, spend more energy fighting each other than fighting to survive. This is an attempt to create 'drama' - was the writer not able to get enough drama out of the premise of flesh eating plants conquering the world? Nothing rings true. Watching it becomes a disappointing waste of time. A great shame since the effects and production values are excellent. Another example of where spending a little more time, thought & money on the script would've paid huge dividends. This could've been awesome, but sadly it's a complete turkey.
