My Plex account listed this movie as being a “Drama Romance Crime Thriller Horror Comedy”. We laughed, but that’s actually pretty accurate.
_Final rating:★★★ – I personally recommend you give it a go._
Wheaton pulls off this black comedy well. It is a quiet crescendo of unpleasant characters justifying their anti social actions with the logic internal to their own moral micro-cosmos. Watching Sightseers is an experience of being torn between being amused, feeling guilty for being amused, and repulsion against the protagonists and even most of the minor character that has the misfortune to cross their paths. Do not watch for feelgoods. Watch it for feel-urghs. But do watch it because it is worth a watch.
Director Ben Wheatley’s obsession with violent death continues in SIGHTSEERS, a would-be black comedy about a couple of sightseers touring northern England and discovering a macabre talent for murder along the way. What could have been an inventive spin on the likes of BADLANDS or BONNIE & CLYDE instead turns out to be a cringing and disappointing non-event.
The problem with this film is the script, which is extraordinarily dim. It mistakes crude humour and gross-out effects for genuine wit, and there’s absolutely nothing there in-between the punchlines. The main characters are repulsive and unlikeable in the extreme and watching them constantly arguing makes this a depressing experience along the lines of EASTENDERS, and for that reason alone I haven’t watched a British soap in many years.
The most annoying thing about this is the wasted potential of the project. Wheatley clearly has talent as director, because I can’t fault his work behind the camera, but it’s squandered on forgettable material. The characters in SIGHTSEERS should be vibrant and intense, likable despite their flaws, but they never are. Alice Lowe’s Tina is, in particularly, a completely grotesque and near-unwatchable creation.
Worth watching for the beautiful scenery, then – I’m the kind of guy who loves the kind of holiday undertaken by the characters here – and a few amusing scenes spaced out here and there, but a lesser beast in contrast to Wheatley’s DOWN TERRACE and KILL LIST.
Brilliantly subtle, real, breathing, believable characters
Can I just say that this is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time, having see Ben Wheatley’s previous offering Kill List which I enjoyed up until the last 10 minutes, I was hoping for something a bit more flowing and understated.
I was not disappointed, the 2 main characters played by Steve Oram and Alice Lowe were superb, Steve’s character Chris is incredibly ordered and anything that veers from his ‘normality’ clearly drives him beyond reason, Alice’s Tina is a little powder keg, who’s character develops beautifully from downtrodden daughter to homicidal maniac without her heart skipping a beat, you can sense the tension and a perverse sexual energy bubbling under her dowdy surface.
The 2 lover’s go on their 1st holiday together in Chris’s caravan, touring such delights as the blue John Caverns and the Crich Tramway museum, meeting normal, believable characters along the way, you cannot help but feel sorry for some of these who in various situations manage to cross the seemingly dull ordinary midlands couple, yet you also can’t really dislike the 2 main players either, genuinely funny without trying and deadpan deliveries make this a joyous British film with laugh out loud moments aplenty.
The matriarchal character played by Eileen Davies although not on screen much steals the show, I defy anybody not to laugh at her on screen antics.
All the people the touring lover’s come across are underplayed and believable, anybody who has been to places such as the site’s shown in this movie will relate with the characters in this movie.
Overall, any fans Black Comedy will love this, beautifully shot in gorgeous British Countryside with strong likable leads and bit players, the ending was also a lot better than Kill List:)
