Blow The Man Down – It Doesn’t Blow You Away

Rating (2.5 out of 5)

Summary: I am glad I watched this film. While it didn’t knock my socks off and there were good scenes here. There was almost a good movie here. The signing fisherman as transitions was interesting, the strong matriarchs surprised, but overall this movie is a bit flat.

Plot: After her mom’s funeral, Mary Beth (Morgan Saylor) parties, and finds herself in an awkward situation and kills a man. She turns to her sister Priscilla (Sophie Lowe) for assistance. Together they discover the truth about their little town.

Details: The singing fisherman to start the move was a nice touch. However, there were parts later in the film where the songs were used too much. The later sections were almost as if the movie was too short and they were filling in time. The move is only an hour and a half.

The sisters learning how their mom and her friends collaborated with the local brothel to calm the town was a unique spin. Actually, the sisters themselves aren’t really the main characters. They are merely the conduit for the two sides to interact. The ladies seemed so innocent, but underneath controlled the direction of the town.

While we are treated to a few murders, the rest of the pace of the film is rather slow. The film focused on the sisters, but there wasn’t too much excitement between them or development from them.
