I'm going to make this short. Mute is made by the guy who made the World of Warcraft movie. It looks and feels like so many movies out today. Trying to capture the futuristic landscape that Blade Runner and Japanese properties first ushered in. Forgetting about the nuances of focusing on the looks.
It's a bad movie plain and simple. The first act of the movie pairs a mute and a terrible actor together making it very hard to watch. Every line the actor says is so bad, not from a writing perspective, but from delivery. It really was hard not to turn the movie off.
Then the bad acting alternates with a side story that doesn't seem to connect in any way whatsoever. This side story is lead by Paul Rudd's character, Cactus. Even the quirky performance by Paul Rudd cannot save the bad story that this movie is overflowing with.
When the movie tries to combine the two stories, it feels messy. It was going for an evolving story that makes sense and could be pieced together, but that's impossible.
Stay away from Mute, even though it is free with Netflix, it is not worth wasting 2 hours on this garbage movie. I want my involvement with it to end as soon as possible with this review.
2/10 I liked Source Code, why can't Duncan make a movie like that again?
