Red Riding: 1983

Posted by martinteller on April 30, 2011

This is so closely tied to the first movie that it makes the second feel almost entirely superfluous.  I’m not going to waste much time on this review… there’s some intriguing developments, but a lot of ridiculous bullshit.  The introduction of a paranormal element really irked me, for one thing.  Some of the plot developments felt way too contrived, and ultimately it’s just cynicism taken to absurd extremes.  Also, deliberately obfuscating the distinction between the present and flashback is an annoying trick.  Kind of annoyed with myself for spending such a large chunk of my Saturday on this trilogy.  Rating: 6
