#27 Troll Hunter (2010) Dir. André Øvredal
This movie has a tasty concept and I see why they went down the found-footage route but I think it would have been much better if they shot it conventionally. There’s so many opportunities missed with this idea and it just feels very hollow and plain. A lot of great shit goes down in Troll Hunter but I felt I was just watching it all from a distance (quite literally, handheld style) and I wanted more. It’s a shame. I know America are planning on remaking this and they could actually do a better job of it (did I really just say that?) if they alter the approach by making the characters and set-up jucier. There’s definite potential for a franchise here, and a really good franchise at that, they just need to rethink their strategy.
