“Fourth Kind” Review on Paul’s Blog

The ‘Fourth Kind’ …  The acting was great, but the story and the documentary style approach in particular was dreadful. I sometimes like the documentary approach in films, sometimes find it a bit frustrating but this style seemed so pointless here and a major hurdle to enjoying the film at all.

By including ‘genuine’ research/ interview footage alongside the dramatisation, my attention was dramatically pulled from the movie just when it seemed to matter and it abruptly made me stop caring about the characters each time it happened. Given that these moments would otherwise have been the most interesting and potentially scary, the movie was a big disappointment.
