Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film He Was a Quiet Man

It's surprising that this cast would agree to appear in what plays like an overblown student film. Amateurish lighting and production values and an under-worked script make this no-budget direct-to-video material at best, even though the concept had some promise. Christian Slater gives a performance that is better than the movie deserves, but the rest of the cast either phones it in or goes cartoonishly over the top.
