I really wanted to like this movie. It has a cooler, darker, grittier vibe than the Sherwood movies. The style seems to have been influenced by movies like Crash or Traffic (both of which I really liked). Unfortunately, I Am's execution is but a poor reflection of those movies. Everything was there technically. The acting was passable, at least as good as a decent TV show. But the story, or interlocking stories, I should say, just didn't click. The storylines were stilted and the characters and scenarios were cheap stereotypes.
|Some scenes were filmed in this super awesome looking Mariners Church wedding chapel.|
So kudos the Mariners Church for the effort, but what a shame that the movie wasn't any better. Not that great from the perspective of simple movie watching pleasure, and not that great for spiritual reflection.
Bottom line, 1 star.
