Once decided, John V. Soto, he himself a writer, Director and producer who labored on the field of low-budget thrillers and horror with detective shade, so I thought it once you threaten to science fiction. Today at the trend of parallel universes, teleportation and other hnya. But films such dofiga and more. And how to apply it to turned out to be exciting and original?

If the first (exciting) went so yourself, the second (original) is not allow me to call this film really absolutely bad. Yes, it is linokompa, in which more melodrama than NF, unrealistic expectations than mysteries. But is in this one feature would be worth to which pay more attention and would yum. So what is for the twist? Elementary. Here is another world, but it — other we. And it all said. This would find, Yes, reveal better, season real suspense (not as here), to remove all mistakes uselessness. Would make a great movie. In an excuse maker, I can say that if the future is a plot device will be used in some movie, I will be able to say that is already been — in "Portal".

Woman scientist together with assistant working on the theory of travel in space — over teleportation. After much experimentation they found out that there is a parallel world in which all much like and where they do exist. After she lost her husband, the main character decides to go on a new world and look for a wife there. Suddenly it all right-of ivanec? Here such a simple idea Director John V. Soto, who became even and the writer and producer of the "Portal" needs to intrigue and captivate. What well, whether the implementation is much better so it would really.

Start with that the role of the main character could find the younger Actresses. Hardly in Australia the plan in trouble. It is not that Jacqueline McKenzie is already 50 years old, the thing that it looks 50 it give wrinkles on the face and hands. The than her spouse performed by miles Pollard looks young and rather good she is in the sons or lovers, but not in men. So the critical difference between husband and wife catches and hurts the eyes. As and "professionalism" female scientist.

In one of the episodes when it tells his assistant about the dangers of teleportation are real people, world in she is trying to prove to him that everything will be okay, the assistant says quite a reasonable thing: "a living person is not Apple and not videocamera", then she answers the "so what?". How the hell can the "so what?" Here when teleport your legs will grow to wall, head, right hand and ass the Gobi desert, then you probably know that people are not Apple! One of the postulates of films on a similar theme ("the Fly" Cronenberg and"deja vu") States that the movement of the person in space time many factors, even from whether it clothes! But here, thanks to the stupid phrase of the heroine, MacKenzie "so what?", it turns out that all her scientific experiments can be spit. And for what? And for their own desires to have sex with my husband (which is confirmed by subsequent events), because in the future becomes, one thing is clear: this a woman scientist does not think brains what is between her legs, because even the most obvious things around it rejects don't want to see that her new-old husband does not be loving and caring, like seems to first.

This is confirmed by its behavior when it turns out that hubby went for a drive. Absolute indifference and complete lack of even trying to go on his quest. Instead — a glass of wine... Probably for to the bed to be a tiger and scratched sweetie in a fit of passion his back. In General, according to emotionally "Portal" turned out to be inert and unlikely. Woman scientist tells the children about his work that she returned from parallel world — makes it is very improbable, but kids behave more improbable — silent listen to the entire the crap that carries mother. Oh at least, hearing such stories could be to react differently.

Throughout the film the Director shows a parallel world that seems no different from ours. But how to show that is it another reality? Yes very simple! It is sufficient to impose on the picture a different filter, making it a slightly dark and to change the basic color science lab! And you're done!

Speaking of lab. According to me as the study, especially what are presented here, should be held strictly secret places, with a high level of protection and tolerance. However, the "Portal" proves the opposite, showing the lab in some building like a roadside Motel where no protection, no manual and only two of a person who supressirovano at the help of stand with buttons the two computers...

Show Director more differences between the worlds, add it a more detailed account of movement between them, at least take part of the famous TV series "Sliders", or urvi a piece of mysticism of the "Flatliners," we would have a good movie where in one person open the door, start to climb strange and even scary creatures of another dimension. Well, or at least it was possible to focus on a psychological Thriller and develop more clearly the story of a man who is like a mother, and on the other is a stranger, about which a little that knows the wife and children of their own and then "Portal" was would be more interesting and exciting. However, John V. Soto decided to show a lot of unnecessary moments in including a visit to Granny and absolutely worthless all the actors involved in this scene, decided to add mystery to the character of Pollard and shoved the scene with the passing the Park friends... Decided that be cool again and again to show hugging and kissing spouses, like when one of them not nazanimalas sex and now just do that dive bed...

Really, it's time to quit base movie...

However, to watch You. Your opinion is not impose.

Nice view.
