It’s not terrible
It’s not terrible, but that’s also not saying much. The score also isn’t very indicative of this film’s quality, but on such a prominent site as IMDb – it is no surprise. 5 stars for the effort of trying to be something it clearly isn’t – a Guy Ritchie style gangster flick.
Is it funny ? Yeah, at times – it is, but most of the laughs are accompanied by a cringe. Is it original ? Hardly. You always get a feeling you have seen all this before – which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but in this case it feels like Re-Directed is awkwardly trying to mimic its bigger brothers from UK. The dramatic arguments in some of the scenes feel incredibly forced – clear over-acting steals the emphasis from what should be really important in the scene. That said, the pacing is okay, there’s enough action for this kind of movie and it doesn’t stall too much. Also, I found some scenes genuinely comical, but some were a bit too cliché-ridden.
What deserves some applause though, is that the director didn’t attempt to paint a realistic picture of Lithuania, but took the satirical, “Looney Tunes” approach instead. It’s one of the things I actually liked about this film – it’s very light-hearted and doesn’t take itself seriously, which scores it some very much needed points.
This is something you watch once, then remember how many times you had watched Snatch/Lock Stock, and then watch them again – because they are worth it.
At times uneven and foolish, but with multiple giggling moments
Of course, Redirected in no conceptual film, no Tarantino, Richie, Besson, etc. (although those names have been paragons for film-makers here), it contains several clichés and weird solutions, but still…
First, Lithuania is not a known film country, but it has somehow caught the eye of Vinnie Jones and Scot Williams, who are relatively well known (and who give memorable performances here). Plus good local ones, enhancing realism and versatility.
Secondly, we see nice and realistic pictures of Lithuanian landscape, habits and relics from their Soviet past, being an integral part of this constant bustle called the plot…
And last but not least – there are many scenes that make you giggle, even when they are not too witty (for example, radiator- or priest- related). And the ending is twisted, which is not so common in related films, but British influence is obvious here as well.
Thus, in case of British or U.S. film, I would have given 6-7 points, but for a Lithuanian/British one – 8 points easily. Well done, my fellow Balts, and it is no wonder it obtained the largest audience there.
PS In 2011, Young Estonians made a crazy gangster comedy called Bad Hair Friday: http://www.badhairfriday.com/ You may want to watch it after Redirected, and compare.
