Indie Movie Review – The Faceless Man

Talk to the face.

Wow… well… I’m almost speechless. That was pretty atrocious. Anyway, a review…

I try to find something I like in a film I’m reviewing, but this one was hard! To start with, The Faceless Man didn’t seem to know what it was… gangster, revenge, horror, family drama, small-town vigilante, gore fest… it seemed to wander through all of those genres at various points. I honestly think it could be edited in about half a dozen different ways to take out one or more of the story threads and it’d still be just as watchable, but half an hour shorter.

I was trying to think what The Faceless Man reminded me of, and it dawned on me that I was thinking of something like Bad Taste without the comedy, but with better image definition. The acting was poor and the effects were laughable, but Peter Jackson did all right for himself in the end. At least Mr Jackson’s beginnings were over thirty years ago and special effects have come a long way since then, or so I thought; considering how much explicit violence there was I would have thought that they’d have invested a bit more in those areas.

I think it is summed up at the very end, after the credits, when Sophie Thurling breaks the fourth wall and says, straight into the camera, “Is this a joke?”

Sophie Thurling — someone to keep an eye on (if you have a face)

Incidentally, I started off by saying I try to find something I like, and for me that is the aforementioned Ms Thurling who is in her first feature-length outing. She was, in the main, believable as the cancer sufferer estranged from her father, the coke-addled party girl, the aloof big city snob in a small town, the paranoid victim, and the bewildered survivor… see what I mean about it being over-genred!

For me, The Faceless Man is a D.

Movie Grade: D

This is a great app. I wish more people would support it

This app provides info about movies, reviews, ratings from people who have seen it before and after viewing. It has links to info about the movies. It let’s you know when there will be a lull in the action and how long it will last. If you want to know what happens during that time, you can check the brief synopsis (you have to click a link, so no accidental spoilers). It has a timer you can set (silent) to alert you to a break. It also tells you whether there is anything extra during or after the credits. It’s really a wonderful app. I’ve subscribed for a couple of years to support the developers, but I noticed some of the links to provide feedback didn’t seem to work today. They also made it free, with voluntary donations to see the pee-times. If you haven’t tried it, I encourage you to do so, and subscribe if you like it. I really hope the app is supported so it can continue to be maintained!

Developers note: RunPee doesn’t make much money but it supports itself nicely. Donations are appreciated, but not required. We’ll add as many movies to the database as we can until there are no more movie theaters.

  1. And now I have the song Eyes Without A Face stuck in my head. But it seems this is about a face without eyes? Or a head without a face?

    Since the film sucks and I won’t be seeing it, what is the actual premise?

  2. Trust me, I’m not a Billy Idol fan and I’d rather have that song stuck in my head than this film!

    What is the premise? Damned if I can remember and I don’t think I can face watching it again! I do remember that there were a lot of mismatched storylines and it could have been anything really…

    1. HA! That gave me a giggle. Are you sure this isn’t an F film? Maybe an F+? Is it actively or casually bad? Or is this so not worth thinking about that it doesn’t matter…

      Also I apologize in advance for one of those Xmas movies. Damn. Unwatchable. I have a low tolerance for Xmas in general, but holy hell. You’ll see what I mean when you get to it.
