I'm going to turn the tables on you here for this review of the movie Green Room. The difference from my other reviews is the fact that I loved the story itself, but everything else about the movie (acting, dialogue, filmography, etc) made it fall to a "Just ok" rating. There are just so many things that were awful about this movie.
Now that I have ranted about all the things I didn't like about Green Room, let me get to the actual storyline of the film. It follows a group of young friends who play in a band together. After a gig, they walk in on a murder, and then get locked in the green room while the club owners try to figure out how to cover it up. Ultimately, they have to get rid of the evidence and anyone who knows what happened a.k.a. the band. So, one by one they are picked off and killed. It's a classic thriller film with some characters getting taken out early, some in the middle, and then the main characters leftover to defend their lives and hopefully turn the tables on the bad guys. I definitely loved the storyline and how it progressed throughout the film I thought was good. I just can't help but think that this movie would be sooooo much better if it weren't for all the problems I listed above.
One last thing I want to add, rest in peace Anton Yelchin. I'm sad to say that these are the only movies I've seen him in, but he was good in
