  • Renton47's rating of the film The Mask

    You could do wonders with a remake that suggests man's desire amounts to more than just wanting to kill women. In fact its a shame the non-dream aspect is so rote, it plateaus and rambles, the audience actually hanging out for a murder. All aboard for the 3D scenes then, perfect for disturbing stoners with its camera-barrelling and Aztecs and hand symbolism. Maybe its all a VR warning cry?
