A-X-L (2018): Action / Adventure / Family

I’ll be quick, and as this is a PG film, I’ll be lenient too…

Writing an “original” script nowadays is hard enough. Directing it in an “original” way, even harder. Oliver Daly, writer/director of short film “Miles” (2015), pens the script and directs its feature version “A-X-L”. A kid and (not) his robotic dog’s adventure can be pretty much summarized as “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982) meets “Transformers” (2007).

Decent story, offering nothing much to its development or its characters with more holes than a swiss cheese that a kid would scratch its head. I know women who would die to find out how after 48 hours of running around the makeup stays intact and the hair straight as an arrow. And I’ll sound like a broken record again, but… Producers… don’t hire only models for underwear.

David S. Goyer has been a brilliant writer and producer for the past three decades and still is. I guess hit-and-miss is part of every job.
