3.0 out of 5 stars Two Blokes An Unlikely Story and Extensive Eye Make Up!, Nov. 12 2011
Tommy Dooley "Tom" (London, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Dog Tags [Import] (DVD)
This is a film from writer and director Danien Dietz, and he has yet to perfect either craft. That said I did still find merit in this film, and that is probably from the strength of the acting. It is about a guy called Nate (Paul Preiss), who is in a relationship with a domineering older woman sharing house with his mum/mom. She keeps reminding him how useless he is and so he might as well join the marines ' she helps him in this task by shaving his head ' to show commitment.

We have an alternative story of Andy (Bart Fletcher) who has lost the love of his life; we assume being killed whilst on active duty. Their paths collide when a 'model shoot' sans clothes goes wrong, when Nate realises he has accepted one free ride too many. Andy leaves just after him and his car won't start, so ex mechanic Nate gets it going, ostensibly by looking at the engine. Andy then drops him off home where he uncovers an ulterior motive for his girlfriend's keenness to be shot of him.

What happens next is an unlikely joining of the two, they meet a number of characters along the way as Nate tries to find out who his father is and reconcile himself with being a marine. This is unlikely but not preposterous; it seems to have been misold with the sexy cover. This is not a bedroom action flick, but a study in people and relationships, but even that is only done in a mostly superficial way.

There are also the issues of the body double in one of the few bedroom scenes, which was a bit much, and the lingering shots of door frames etc. This looks like someone honing their craft or just filling the time up, but I think it as trying to be poignant, but just too arty to really pull it off. Besides all of the issues, I was kept entertained for the hour and a half and I have seen a lot worse, so actually a thumbs up, and more than passable for a rental.
