Pass Thru (2016)

Another film directed by the Breenius that is Neil Breen. An AI humanoid visits Earth to rid the world of corruption and greed.

I have previously written reviews for the other Neil Breen movies. When I heard this film was out, it certainly piqued my interest. Not out of any scholarly interest, but just with the interest you’d apply to watching a car crash.

Now, before I actually review the film, I just want to say that I have nothing against Breen seeing himself as an indie filmmaker. It’s just the way he goes about it which makes the films so lacklustre.

It feels as if nothing has changed from the previous movies. There isn’t any stock footage used but even so green screen is used liberally and it doesn’t even try to hide it. Any potential this film had, such as through its comments on broadcast media and corruption, it wasted it early on. None of the characters were fleshed out in any way at all. At times it felt as if the film was trying to be a poor excuse for an art film, and yet again it didn’t quite succeed.

The dialogue is as repetitive and tedious as in the previous films. I don’t know why, but it always comes across as very clunky. Breen seems to be wanting to put his own idealogies into his films, and perhaps that’s why the dialogue is so clunky.

The film in its entirety just comes across as incredibly lazy. There is nothing at all redeeming about this film in the slightest. Even the younger actors’ potential was wasted here.

MY RATING: * / *****
