Shaky Camera-work Makes It Unwatchable.
I liked the way the story was going and seemed like I would enjoy the movie, however, The camera constantly shakes throughout the movie. In the beginning I tried to ignore the shaking. But the unsteady camera meant that I could not connect with the characters. Acting was fine, story may have been fine. The camera is so shaky that it makes Cloverfied appear to have been shot with a steady camera.
Most of the shots are close and personal. So why the shaky camera? Surely, a tripod is not that expensive? The camera man is not having to run with the characters or anything like that. So what is the need for a shaky hand-held camera cinematography? I was compelled to stop watching after 20 minutes, which is a shame because every other aspect of this movie was probably good.
