First things first. I usually like to start with the positive aspects
of a film and the biggest thing this film has going for it are the
visuals. It has a very consistent color palette throughout, giving it a
clean, professional look that is very hard to achieve with such a small
budget. With updates to computer software technology and hardware
allowing for lower prices, it really isn't difficult to put this
technology in the hands of Joe Q. Public but with that being said, it
still requires some skill and an eye for detail to keep consistency
throughout. The CGI is fairly well done, opting for the "less-is-more"
approach which helps to lend an ominous air to the overall production.
The music is also decently done, but a generic suspense film score.
Now for the not so good points. The pacing of this film is done in such
a way that the skill of acting is severely lacking. The line delivery
is very stunted and slowed down, as though there was an overall feeling
that the dialogue wouldn't be heard unless they... speak... very...
slowly (the news broadcast is one example that comes to mind). By doing
this, there's just no energy or believability to anyone's performance.
For a better idea of how this can be overcome, especially on such a low
budget, I recommend watching Shane Carruth's "Primer". He opted for
more naturalistic speech. This allowed the actors to come across as
more authentic. The Rift also incorporates way too many lingering
closeups of the actor's faces. M. Night Shyamalan also does this a LOT
in his movies and it really detracts from his story-telling overall. In
the Rift, it just highlights the inadequacy of the depth of the acting
and serves to give an overall slowness to the film's story arc.
As for the script, there's just too much oddness that makes no sense.
For example, the DARPA 'assassin' is this left-field character who
doesn't really add anything overall and feels like it was shoe-horned
in. Also, the fact that those who collected information about these
'anomalies' mysteriously disappeared also makes no sense. It implies
there is a government conspiracy to end the world with monsters from
another dimension. Why? What gain could there possibly be?
The overall concept of R.A.D.A.R. anomalies being a cause for alarm is
also a hard idea to swallow. Another idea that feels like it was thrown
in to attempt to create artificial tension. A deeper history of how and
what these R.A.D.A.R. anomalies have done in the past would have helped
a viewer understand why they would concern the main character as much
as they did before all hell started to break loose.
Overall, this film is okay for a short. Visually, it's quite good, but
that's really about it. Acting is sub-par and the story is thread-bare,
containing an odd mesh of ideas that don't really coalesce into a
cohesive and logical whole. It's quite possible that with a bit more
experience/seasoning and a better grasp of plotting, we might be seeing
Robert Kouba churn out some good sci-fi popcorn fare in the future.
This film short is more of a meretricious effort.
