More of a high school project than a feature film.
21 September 2011 | by Alex_j_porterSee all my reviews

Son of Morning is about a 20 something nobody who is suddenly propelled into the spotlight thanks to a reaction to a prescription drug. If you are looking for any of the deep areas this premise can take you, you are sadly mistaken. I do not wish to write a bad review. Perhaps I just do not have the eyes for this film. Unfortunately, from where I am standing, this movie is reminiscent of a high school project with a much bigger budget. Every time the movie attempted to be artsy, the point was far too obvious, and had no real depth. This movie could have been much better.

And just a comment on the last review, I think the director was much too '90 with much of his film work. Many parts (i.e camera work, extra/ main character acting style, certain dialogue and continuous indulgence in it's own messages) were very sudo-avante garde.

That's all I'll say, for I do not wish to slander someone's work. However, I think all would agree, could have been much better. Too good a premise, and too many good actors for such a poor work..... (btw Danny Glover, always a gem. Best part of the film)
