Thoughts on Badland
Final Thoughts – Badland brings us to the idea of being with cleaning up criminals of a war that has long be over, this is a story we have seen before, only this time, it does feel incredibly boring, with little to nothing happening for most of the film. The acting isn’t the strongest, with the lead Kevin Makely struggling to make his character feel interesting or have anything to make his standout from anyone else in the industry. This is one that just doesn’t get going, doesn’t offer anything new and just ends up becoming plain and boring.
Overall: Dull and Ineffective.
