Directed by David Brooks
Running Time: 90 minutes (so, 80 minutes too long)
Plot Synopsis: (via IMDB)
On a late night visit to an ATM, three co-workers end up in a desperate fight for their lives when they become trapped by an unknown man.
I reviewed House At The End Of The Street recently and was a total snobby bitch about how awful it was. Well, you know what? That was The Godfather compared to this pile of shit! When I first read about this I thought “Three people trapped in one of those little ATM shelter things I think they only have in big cities in America as I’ve only ever seen one in that episode of Friends where Chandler got locked in one with a famous model? Can that really work for a whole 90 minute movie?” NO! Apparently it can’t!!!
Well, I don’t know – maybe it could have worked with a better script & characters. Hell, I liked Panic Room. Come to think of it, there was also that Ryan Reynolds movie where he’s buried underground for the whole thing and that wasn’t TOO bad, although I didn’t love it (oh – that was actually written by the same guy who wrote ATM! just noticed that on the poster above). Oh, and I have yet to see Locke, which is just Tom Hardy in a car, but THAT looks good. So, okay – the concept here maybe wasn’t all that bad. I guess the problem is the idiotic characters, stupid script, a totally generic “bad guy”, and one of those horror movie endings that makes you go “what the hell was the point of all that?!”
Alice Eve is hot, though. Why do the boys in the audience get her while we have to look at the two dorks above? Really?? That kid from Drake & Josh??? He was also in the Red Dawn remake I suffered through recently. Ugh. If for some reason you’re a fan of his, do yourself a favor & watch the movie Mean Creek instead. That was pretty good. Do NOT watch this! I’m bored. Summary time!
Two guys, one girl with big cups. Stuck in an ATM thingy for 90 minutes while some psycho torments them (and us!) for no reason whatsoever. Yawnfest.
My Rating: 3.5/10
This was definitely dull. Alice Eve was the only highlight 🙂
More than dull. I agree she was the only thing to look at. And I’m a girl! 🙂
My first thought was ‘what, one of those things Chandler Bing got stuck in?’ too! Sounds like one to avoid for sure.
Lol! That’s funny – a few people thought of Chandler Bing. Glad I wasn’t the only one! 🙂
When was the ass-to-mouth part?
Additional scene after the credits. Eric missed it because he had to pee.
I also was thinking abt that Friends ep when I read the synopsis 🙂
Maybe this would be better if it really was Chandler in there for 90 minutes.
I think I’ll pass eventhough I really loved Buried
Thanks for the heads up
Lol! That’s funny – a few people thought of Friends. Glad I wasn’t the only one! Yes, the movie may have been better if Chandler had been in it. 🙂
I can’t believe you watched this after I told you how bad it was.
SHAME SHAME SHAME!!!
You think I listen to YOU?!? 😉
Yes, it was bad. So bad it was good! Such awful, stupid characters and such a stupid scenario. What’s not to like?!
God I’m behind on replying to comments!!!! 🙂
Haha, yeah this really is rubbish! Such a hilariously bad ending too.
Hehe. SO BAD! How do movies like this get made??? 🙂
This looks and sounds really bad. Stuck in an ATM wtf?!
Lol. IT IS REALLY BAD! 🙂
Yikes. Sounds dreadful. I think this is one of the lowest scores I’ve ever seen from you. I will stay far, far away…
YES! Do NOT waste your time on this, Cara! Hmm. Yes, this may be one of my lowest scores ever outside of Shitfest. 🙂
