STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

Verdict – 5/5

 

Pros –

 

1) A perfect example of a mediocre story and superior execution.
2) CGI – way ahead of its time.
3) Eerie climactic scene – will never be able to envisage birds the same way again!
4) The build-up.The first half pretend to be a Rock Hudson rom-com but in the second-half, the movie turns upside down.The events in the first half actually jostle the viewer toward a cozy setting and when everyone is in their comfort zone – the ferity begins.

 

Cons –

 

N/A
