Default 'Echelon Conspiracy' - High-Def Digest Review

Nate has reviewed 'Echelon Conspiracy.' He says this film is a rip off of a film that ripped off a certain film starring Cary Grant, only that movie had telegrams, and tiny razors, and some psychic kid who knew to put his fingers in his ears before Eva Marie Saint shot Archibald Leach... But anyway, yeah, skip this one. This Blu-ray has video that turns in a respectable performance, audio thats really sneaks up on you, and not one extra. Zero. Zilch, Cheaparoony folks. Anyway, Skip it skip it skip it.

I was one of the few to actually have seen this film in theaters. I bought it on blu-ray because I enjoyed it enough. It's not Eagle Eye, that's for sure, but it entertained me nonetheless. I won't say it's a good movie in any regard, but it worked okay enough for me.

But '12 Rounds' had a pulse at least.

FACT: If a movie has Ed Burns in it, it probably sucks.

Burns makes waaaaay too many crappy movies to fund his lifestyle. The problem is that his "passion projects" have never really been all that good either!

GREATER FACT: If a movie is DIRECTED by Ed Burns, look the fuck out, it will suck so hard a black hole will swallow your TV. I'm looking at you, The Groomsmen.

I'll agree with your fact, though. 27 Dresses, One Missed Call, A Sound of Thunder, major stinkers.

Bingo. 12 Rounds ain't no AFI film, but it is leap years ahead of Echelon, in all respects: acting (and that's scary), bang for the buck, fun, capable direction, and making a cheap movie look expensive.
