Arrowhead full movie review - Not a great film, but an interesting one
Honestly I had never heard about this film going in, so I had no idea what to expect. This Arrowhead is pretty good quality for something low budget, but there are times, particularly in the first scene, where you could probably guess this film had limited funds.
The film certainly has many weaknesses, like a lack of subtlety, it often brings a lot of attention to details that at the time seem completely pointless and a waste of time, most of these moments eventually have a purpose but it still stood out at the time.
Another weakness is consistency (spoiler paragraph), why is one alien man broken out of a rock looking egg when the other isn't? why did the protagonist find a skeleton of a woman who was not dead? most of the inconsistencies come from the whole 'monster/human hybrid' story, which to be honest I'm not convinced it was all that necessary, however that's probably just me being a tad confused as to how it all worked.
As for what the film did right, it had a pretty stunning location for most of the film, near the start of the film I remember looking at the sky behind the character and liking what I saw. It was usually a very pretty film to look at. Also the scene at the start was quite intense and did get me interested.
Not a great film but if you look at the IMDb page of this films director Jesse O'Brien this seems to be the first feature length film he has ever directed. While I wouldn't necessarily be anticipating a continuation on THIS story I would like to follow Jesse to see what else he comes up with next.
