  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Shootout at Lokhandwala

    Flat dialogue, static characterization, and awkward acting. The editing of the action scenes are jarring in their flow of the shot transitions, completely killing the rush of adrenaline. And these scenes also have one of the most annoyingly obtrusive music scores I have heard in a while. The plot sequencing is also irritatingly and uselessly done in flashback, destroying the stories in-the-moment sensibility.
