I didn’t think there would be a film I regretted more than Shades. Oh how wrong I was.
It could have been a clever and fast paced techno thriller along the same vein as Enemy of the State and The Net (ok, The Net hasn’t dated well but it’s my guilty pleasure). However, what transpires on screen is something I feel should have been left on the cutting room floor.
The premise is sound, but it’s poorly executed and the excuse for a romance lacks any chemistry. The plot is so incoherent that I’m pretty certain a main character dies twice and ten people left before the credits rolled.
