Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Republic

Not really a film, despite the screen gradually fading from black to white throughout the 3 1/2 hr runtime, The Republic doesn't even have decent enough sound effects or vocal performances (some lines are delivered as if the performers are just reading them aloud while seeing them for the first time) to make it worth the slog. My rating reflects the main ideas of the plot rather than other aspects of the production.
