A hack job masquerading as art

1/10 This movie is proof that an 80 minute film can be just as long, boring and pretentious as any 3 hour plus epic costume Hollywood picture. The movie's budget is so low that it can not afford to show us any real battle, and for a war film, that is a big minus. To compensate what it can not show us, the filmmakers over-fill the soundtrack with constant gunfire, explosions, bombings, airplanes flying over heard, etc. It was exhausting after a while.

Of course, none of those aforementioned things would matter in the least if the movie had characters we cared about at all, or a story worth giving a damn about. Every single Close Up shot in the movie feels fake, and the director holds them for way too long before cutting away, making them feel even more disingenuous. The characters have no personality, no soul to them, so we are forced to watch two wooden people for what felt like an eternity, both of do as much overacting as possible for roles that require very minimal dialogue. The movie is simply over directed; everything in it feels fake, especially the actors' expressions. There really is nothing to find here: no drama, no suspense, no tension, only your life wasting away one second at a time.

snooze fest

2/10 I feel the movie missed its target of giving the viewer empathy of the Main character and did not give due to credit to those that endured this fate. Very little information of the 'fight' with the environment; I would have thought a pilot in this situation would have faced more than some splashing through puddles and a few bull ants e.g.Fatigue, hunger, dysentery from only water source available. Little effort to show the language barriers as main characters made few if any attempts to communicate with each other. Obvious costume and editing errors; disappointing to an observant viewer. Very long draw out periods of repetitive views of foliage canopy.

Canopy: not a good film.

2/10 This is a boring and depressing film that you could spare to yourself. There is no action, no adventure, not even a recognizable plot. There is this endless display of green tropical plants that perhaps, being you a fervent botanist, could catch your attention.

If you, just like me, feel that once started a movie you must finish it, you'll probably end like me, hoping that the two characters get soon killed or whatever, just to put an end to your and their suffering.

I'm not joking: you won't forget, not even for a while, that what you are watching is just a movie (a bad one) and that those that you see are actors. I'm sure that many of you have done better with your holiday movies.

Canopy: An International Australian Story

9/10 Canopy celebrates the art of visual storytelling and atmospheric emersion. Aaron Wilson's sensibility about his characters journey, compels the audience to really think hard, and then feel deeply what these two allied pilots endured and the bond they formed while evading the Japanese. Actors Jim (Khan Chittenden) and Seng (Tzu-yi Mo), portray the innocence in war with a human story of survival and friendship. Their performances are bound together by non-speaking roles and the unforgiving Singapore jungle, where their planes were shot down during Wartime in 1942. As non-language film, Canopy exposes it's audience to the emotional effects of isolation under duress, the jungle is both a threat and sanctuary, giving security when needed but ultimately driving you further into the unknown inevitability of war in a foreign land. The most remarkable aspect of experiencing Canopy in the cinema, is feeling the embodiment of the characters environment. The Singapore jungle is brought to life by it's sounds, emphasised by an amazing surround cinema mix...this is a sound and vision feast for character driven film lovers.

Beautiful and intense. Turn the lights off and sound up

8/10 I watched this in the dark with high volume. Which I would advise everybody else to do so also, as this movie is all about it's sounds, feel and atmosphere.

I wasn't expecting much from this movie as I had not heard of it, however I was pleasantly surprised.

The movie is set with one main character who is crash landed in a foreign destination in the midst of the second world war.

The movie is eerie, the scenery is beautiful and the character is very well played. The constant build up of suspension leaves you driven to wondering what will happen next, and although nothing much appears to happen by way of extremities, there is a great awareness of the solitude and danger which could always be nearby...

Admittedly this is not the type of block buster war movie you would put against such movies of recent showing extreme heroism and patriotism, it is not the same, and for these reasons above, I think 8/10 is warranted.. Enjoy
