Carnage Park ★★½

Hoop-Tober 2016, Entry #5

Films that start off this intense usually keep a steady level of interest for me by the movie's end. Carnage Park, however, is a film that doesn't know how to properly balance its true story basis with its frightening antagonist in an entertainment based context. Pat Healy is freakin' awesome. In general I mean, but in this as well. However, his character doesn't appear to be clear in his motives nor endgame. I understand this is due to real life transcripts providing squat and an effort in upping the mystery aspect behind it all. Although those reasons make sense, it doesn't mean it needs to be taken as a positive toward the Keating's overall execution. The film is basically a set-up, a main protagonist's initial conflict and then just a long and kind of boring escape for the entire 3rd act of the film. The ending was horribly underwhelming for me. The acting by all members of the cast is terrific, but that's the only thing I could really praise about Carnage Park as a whole.
