Rolling

I was sent Rolling for review. It's an independent film directed by Damon Jamal who has directed over 220 music videos and now moves forward with his first feature debut. It was claimed to be the modern Breakfast Club. Leading with that, I already had high expectations.

The acting was mediocre. Most of the time, it felt forced. I felt like the film was pushed too hard to BE like The Breakfast Club instead of using it as an inspiration.

A group of high schoolers break into their school in order to film a movie -- why such a random group of teenagers would voluntarily meet there is still beyond me.  There wasn't much depth to the issues the trailer promotes: relationships, stereotypes, drug addictions, and sexual identities. The film did touch upon those subjects but it wasn't heartfelt enough for me. I give it 1 out of 5 stars.


But if you want to check it out for yourself, the film will be released straight to DVD in October.

*I was not paid for this review, but I was sent the screener in order to view the film.

I don't think I would watch that film based on the trailer alone... And based on your review, it doesn't sound like it even lived up to the trailer! LOL I'm going to trust you on that one. :P
