It was another long day at Universal Studios, today at the Islands of Adventure. I will say that the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey may be one of the best rides I have seen-absolutely amazing. The same cannot be said for the next film up for review, 2014s The Mirror.
Plot/ Three roommates purchase the supposedly haunted antique on eBay and set up round the clock cameras in the hopes of capturing evidence of something going bump in the night.
This one was definitely nothing special. In fact, it may be one of the worst found footage flicks I have seen in some time. Sure, the acting was not too bad (actually, it may have been the best part of the movie), but that was not enough to save this film from an overall lack of excitement or atmosphere. The effects were minimal, the storyline was thin, and there was nothing that kept my attention. In the end, although I am a huge supporter of low budget cinema, this one really does nothing for me. Yes, there was some potential, but it never comes close to reaching it. Stay away!
