This is a mockumentary within a mockumentary. The ensemble cast is a Who’s Who of modern filmmaking, from Werner Herzog, independent director (Nosferatu, Grizzly Man, Rescue Dawn) playing himself directing a documentary, to cinematographer Gabriel Beristain (of the Blade movies) playing himself, to Sound Recorder/Mixer extraordinaire Russell Williams II (of Independent Lens, Moesha, Training Day) playing himself, to.. well you get the idea. Throw in the legend of Nessie and you’ve got a totally hilarious thriller mockumentary directed by Zak Penn, Make sure you watch the commentary with the Director and cast members, which continues the fiction of the movie. It’s brilliant.
User Reviews: A very charming little film.
Mysterious characters bring so much to this film. Tension between the major players in the film, and the mystery beneath the Loch all work nicely together as they converge on the black waters of Loch Ness. It provides everything from funny and insane dialog to a Playmate in a very tiny American Flag string bikini. What more could anyone ask for?!
Lots of little twists, and the players develop nicely. I can only say that it is ultimately predictable as it reaches it’s climax. But like gawking a car wreck, you just can’t stop watching it unfold into its natural conclusion. Still, it’s very entertaining as it takes you there.
A very solid and respectable "B" grade in my book.
