"The Words" Very Slowly Told A Tale by Pamela Powell
"The Words" was a story about a story within a story. Sound confusing? Maybe, but it makes sense in the movie. The concept itself was great. As I described the movie to a friend afterward, I thought it sounded wonderfully entertaining. She wasn't yawning at all when I told her about it. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case when I was in the theater watching the matinee. The movie's pace was excruciatingly slow. I found myself looking at my watch several times and for a movie that is only 96 minutes long, that's not a good indication.
It's easy to sit back and critique a movie and say which way the writers and directors should have gone with it. I realize that. Unfortunately, I have to honestly tell you (this is Reel HONEST Reviews!) what I thought of it. Save your money. If you really want to see this one, wait for the DVD. It'll be out soon.
